Wood & Wine’s core mission is to source and supply unique international wines that offer the best value in terms of price versus quality whilst providing a diverse educational wine experience.
Beginning with South Africa, the aim is to seek out the most exceptional wines in each price category and ship them to Hungary for your enjoyment at a price that will leave you thinking, “WOW, I cannot believe I paid that price for such an incredible wine!”.
Moreover, in addition to a great wine selection, loads of information and fun facts will be provided about the origin and history of the wines, their tasting profiles, and so forth. An actively engaged, happy customer is our top priority!
You might be wondering where the ‘Wood’ part in Wood & Wine fits in.
Well, in the not so distant future we will also be offering a variety of woodcrafts that draw inspiration from the ‘fine wine and dine’ lifestyle.
Please join us on our journey exploring the fabulous world of wine;
it is the ability to share the excitement and joy of a new discovery that inspires us!
About those who are working on this to happen
Hailing from South Africa, Craig graduated from Hotel School and proceeded to gain in excess of 15 years’ experience within the hospitality industry.
Having specialized in Food and Beverage, he was fortunate to gather in-depth knowledge of South African wines and hence became profoundly passionate about it.
Igor on the other hand is a true ‘citizen of the world’ often jetting off to the far reaches of the planet.
With his roots firmly planted in private aviation and luxury events management, his travels have allowed him to sample a multitude of wines from different growing regions across the globe.
Sára heads the company’s sales division and has become an integral part their vision. Her love for wine was inherited from her father who used to take her to wine tastings even though she could only try the cheese! When she finally could sample more than that, she quickly realised what all the fuss was about. Fearlessly she dove headfirst into the world of wine discovering the nuances of the different varietals and styles. Her true love of course is Hungarian wine, but that didn’t stop her from developing a taste for what the rest of the world has to offer.
I am curious about the story behind wines. Small things, details and finding beauty behind the surface of life are crucial. I am very passionate about every aspect of life, from work, friendship, adventure to eating and drinking. For me, not only the moment of drinking is significant, but the whole atmosphere, the company and the occasion when I am having a glass of wine. I love discovering new things and giving further thoughts to my experiences.
Together they hope to tantalize Hungary’s taste buds by offering exceptional wines from lesser-known regions that over-deliver in the price versus quality categories. Initially, the focus will be on South African wines but will soon be followed by delicious gems from all sorts of exotic destinations.
Whilst all this is going on, they will also be gathering an exemplary representation of local wines for export to show wine enthusiasts from abroad that Hungary is a serious competitor when it comes to the art of winemaking.
WOOD & WINE’S CORE VALUES SUMMED UP IN ONE STATEMENT:
