According to the City of Amsterdam...
...we opened our wine shop in 2020. But we'd say Benelux Wine Co began a year earlier, when we moved from Tokyo to Amsterdam.
🍇 We rented a car for a month & visited all the winemakers we could find within a day's drive of the city. To our surprise, we tasted some incredible bottles, and eventually started selling some of them to new friends & neighbors.
We call that the beginning.
Or maybe it started much earlier, like when we spent a season harvesting grapes in Bordeaux. Or maybe when we worked on that goat farm in Israel. Or perhaps that vineyard in Australia?
🌍 Whatever the case, here's our outlook: Think globally, drink locally.
In the end, we opened a shop to give other wine drinkers in Amsterdam that same power to discover and support small local producers.
