Europvin was founded by Christopher Cannan in 1978 on a simple yet astute concept: select a unique portfolio of the finest estate wines in Europe and bring it to the attention of discerning importers and opinion makers around the world.
Today Europvin is directed and managed by a dynamic team of professionals who combine a passion for working with “terroir driven” wines along with an extensive knowledge of distribution channels and the marketing expertise required in both emerging as well as established markets.
Whilst pursuing the development of our prestigious portfolio selections, we have paid particular attention to sourcing a range of wines that represent genuine value for the consumer as well as maintaining the strict quality criteria for which Europvin is renowned.
In addition to our portfolio selections, we have established a fully dedicated “Agency” department to service the specific requirements of exclusive partner wineries in key markets. This department encompasses some of our most illustrious wineries such as Vega Sicilia, CVNE, E.Guigal and Emilio Lustau.
As a Bordeaux ‘négociant’, Europvin is recognised as an important source for Bordeaux Classified Growth wines. We receive prized allocations from Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Mouton Rothschild, Châteaux Margaux, Château Haut Brion “en primeur” along with many other of the most prestigious Bordeaux Châteaux who are increasingly aware and appreciative of the high quality distribution that Europvin provides.
Selection & Negotiation: Our portfolio offers a unique combination of some of the most sought after wines in the world alongside the latest discoveries that are yet to make their mark. The Europvin portfolio is a true reflection of our personal taste and passion for wines of unique and genuine character.
Our selected producers trust us to provide the highest quality distribution and marketing support. In return, we are able to negotiate the most favourable terms and conditions for our importers and distributors.
Logistics: Administrative and logistical support remain cornerstones of the Europvin service, with a dedicated team of experts on hand to ensure that labelling and paperwork conform to importers requirements, and that orders are consolidated and shipped with utmost efficiency. We can cater to any request from the most basic Ex-Cellars collection right up to door to door delivery.
Sales & Marketing Support: Europvin offers a fully integrated sales and marketing support service to importers, providing hands-on work in the market: seminars, tasting presentations, staff training, wine-maker dinners etc. These activities are coordinated by our commercial team based in Bordeaux, and by our dedicated Regional Sales Managers based across the world from the USA to China. Product expertise and comprehensive technical information is one of the most important aspects of our service. We are proud to have a Master of Wine on the management team who is available to provide advice and detailed information about our wines as well as conduct VIP tastings for our importers and distributors.
