Some pictures from our stand during Vinexpo Hong Kong.
More than 15 000 visitors joined the 3 days show.
It was a the perfect occasion to welcome our Asian clients but also partners from America and the middle east showed up.
The presence of our Shanghai team as well as our sales force from Bordeaux and our management helped develop our business even further.
Also a big thank you to Gwenaelle and Marie-Pierre for the preparation of the show.
Tastings and meetings went on during the 3 days.
A great event before next years Vinexpo in Bordeaux !
Thank you to all of you and hope to see you soon.

April 2012 : Barrière Frères Tasting

For the 2nd consecutive year, an exceptional tasting in our cellars was organized with the presence of 44 prestigious “Crus” who showed vintages 2008, 2009 and 2010. Some, for a sneak preview, also kindly showed their 2011 vintage !

More than 150 clients coming from all continents were able to discover, or re-discover, all of the special wines and vintages and were able to exchange, in a serein atmosphere, with the Chateaux owners.

Special thanks to all and we await the 3rd Annual Barrière Tasting already with great excitement!!!

2011 : Barriere Frères Visit Solaia (Tenuta Tignanello)

Part of our short but sweet visit to Tuscany, an impeccable stop at Tenuta Tignanello where the exceptional « Solaia » wine is made. Here, it is the Cabernet Sauvignon which is king. Welcomed and accompanied by the amicable Francesco Visani, Marketing Director of Antinori. Bravissimo !

2011 : Barriere Frères Visit Masseto (Tenuta dell’Ornellaia)

A exquisite, fascinating, trip to Tuscany and notably to the sublime estate of Tenuta dell’Ornellaia where the legendary Masseto wine is made from. Bravissimo !

2010 Vintage « En-Primeurs » (Inside Look)

This is an inside glimpse of a Primeurs Campaign within a négociant firm (specialized in the Classified Growth market). In our case, we regroup all nine sales people into our open-space to maximize real time communication, efficiency and thus customer service.

On any given day, we may have upto 25-30 differents wines/labels released on the market creating a rush to inform our best customers (across all time zones) about the best possible purchasing opportunities.

Of course, frustrations and exhilarations abound !! It is a context of instantaneous selling and buying, buying and selling.

2011 Vinexpo (June)

A fantastic week ! Positive meetings and exchanges with virtually all of our best customers and partners (covering more than 25 different countries) as well as constructive meetings with many new prospects.

Bill Maher on France (2007)

Ok, here we divert alittle towards something, arguably, humorous ….

Bill Maher is an American television, political commentator, author and actor. Bill Maher hosted a late-night talk show called « Politically Incorrect » originally on Comedy Central and later on ABC TV.

Here Bill Maher blasts (USA) conservatives who dismiss everything French as if it’s somehow « the ultimate argument winner ». Ok, it’s somewhat dated now, but still has the punch for the attention !
