    Presenters:  Cenna Lloyd – Negociants

    Established in 1985 by Australia's most historic family-owned winery, Yalumba, Negociants New Zealand is one of New Zealand’s leading fine wine merchants, distributing many of New Zealand’s most celebrated wines, as well as prestigious imported brands from Australia and the world to licenced trade. Their dedicated and knowledgeable team of wine professionals is committed to the highest levels of customer service and quality representation of their portfolio of world-leading wines. The association with Yalumba is obvious.

    Yalumba is Australia's oldest family-owned wine company and in many respects, the history of Yalumba is a reflection of the history of the Australian wine industry. Just like the old Shiraz vine, Yalumba in its early years was primarily a producer of fortified wines. Today, however, the company is a thoroughly modern wine business and one of Australia's largest exporters. The focus is very much looking forward.
