As the year closes there’s plenty to reflect on and be thankful for. Looking back on all the trips, producer visits, tastings and events, it’s been a busy one indeed. Life in the wine trade can be hectic, and the late nights cause some damage to our youthful splendour, but it’s also immensely rewarding. We know how lucky we are not only to work with a product we love—genuine, artisanal, honestly-made wine—but with the exceptional people who make it, and with customers who share our passion.
Our 2016 Portfolio Tasting in February
So on that note I thought I’d share some pictures of our 2016 highlights. In addition to everything mentioned above, this was also the year we launched our new website and took on three new team members: Jo, Luis and Magali. Next year we have no plans of slowing down, so don’t forget to follow us on Twitter on Instagram to keep up with our adventures.
Wishing you the happiest of holidays, from the Indigo team!
