VinVin | Gamechangers in Wine
Translated from dutch. Read the original post
For the head study Wienakademiker I wrote a thesis about the online market in the Netherlands, the question was whether there was a market for a site that offers higher wines. It emerged that about 10% of the market in the Netherlands was online – that will now be higher due to the corona crisis – and that 10% of that online market focuses on higher-end wines. So yes, there is room in the Netherlands for a site that only offers higher or more exclusive wines. read more about this research: Internet wine sales booming
Just now VinVin has been launched, a site with higher wines for consumers and the catering industry. Read more in the press release.
The world of wine is very diverse, complex and often unclear. Even with all the new digital possibilities, it remains difficult for the wine consumer and professional to obtain premium wines other than the usual suspects without spending a lot of time. VINVIN was founded by passionate and experienced wine professionals with the aim of changing this and serving the customers with advice and personal class. Today VINVIN goes live with a collection of 300 wines from more than fifteen exclusive wineries from European top regions. Anyone who wants to drink better wine and who is interested in authentic wines can contact VINVIN. In addition to these enthusiasts, VINVIN also focuses on selective distribution in the hospitality industry, private buyers and wine collectors.
Founders are Corinne Hofland and Marcel Just de la Paisières, both wine experts, and Frank Laurentius, passionate wine lover and entrepreneur: “With our site, we want to offer the wine world a platform that combines personality, class and quality with practical simplicity and a unique customer journey. More than 15 accessible top houses with 100% available wines delivered as quickly as possible, per bottle, box or composite package. One stop shopping in the Champions League of the European wineries. ”
The wine collection consists of family domains including Pascal Jolivet (Loire), Domaine Virgile Lignier Michelot (Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis) and Xavier Monnot (Burgundy, Meursault) but also Fattoria dei Barbi (Tuscany), Weingut Högl (Wachau), Château La Tour de l’Évêque & Petale de Rose (Provence), Domaine d’Henri (Chablis) and Marc Hebrart (Champagne). In addition, there are wines from Bordeaux, Alsace, Rioja, Mosel, and Rueda and in the near future the wine world will be surprised with even more beautiful wines. You also drink better wine with the right glassware; the collection is therefore enriched with the state-of-the-art glassware from Zalto.
VINVIN has a unique collaboration for the wine world with people and entrepreneurs from an internationally varied network of lifestyle, winemakers, top sports, art, business, hospitality and gastronomy. The connecting factor is the passion for honest, fine wine. This personally involved family of VINvestors and VINadvocates includes Frank Smulders (Master of Wine), Ramon Beuk (culinary advisor, chef, teacher), Emile van den Heuvel (entrepreneur), Sara Rosenthal (Rosenthal Interiors), Remy Curfs (entrepreneur ), Pierre van Hooijdonk (Ex top football player and analyst) Pablo Lucker (artist) and Régine Sumeire (Owner and winemaker of Chateau la Tour de l’Eveque, Provence).
VINVIN is thus game changing for the Dutch wine world. All this based on the combination of passion and quality with full focus on the ultimate customer journey; from the wine selection to enjoying a nice glass of wine. For more information, visit: VinVin
