The way to a German wine drinker’s heart
Germany is considered to be a notoriously difficult market in the consumer arena. In the 1990s, supermarket chains Migros (Switzerland), Delhaize (Belgium/USA) and Intermarché (France) successively attempted to enter the German market. Without success. Discount prices by rival companies and brand loyalty among German consumers proved to be insurmountable obstacles. But what about the Germans' taste in wine? Perhaps there is an opening for exporters, especially as domestic production, at 9 million hectolitres, only accounts for just under half of what Germans drink each year. So which wines do Germans prefer? Gilbert & Gaillard asked the experts in Germany.

Loire Reds - A deep-rooted sense of authenticity
Let’s be honest – there are no superstar red wines from the Loire Valley. No local equivalent of the Rhone’s Côte-Rôtie or Bordeaux’s Saint-Emilion. But what there is, is a profusion of talent.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s heart beats for Sauvignon!
The former Sex and the City icon has undeniably left a lasting impression on television. Who doesn’t remember Sarah Jessica Parker playing Carrie Bradshaw, the successful journalist with a penchant for fashion and designer shoes, looking for trouble-free love in the Big Apple? The American star has added another string to her bow, partnering with a New Zealand winery in 2019 to launch ‘Invivo X, SJP’, a Sauvignon blanc which she created and whose sales have soared to dizzying heights matched only by the Empire State Building…
From Côtes du Rhône to Where Goats Do Roam: Exploring the Rhône Style Wines of South Africa
Some say Shiraz, some say Syrah. That is the catchy tagline that the Shiraz Association of South Africa has adopted to illustrate how the styles produced here oscillate between the Old and the New World. Some wine-producing countries might even find themselves glancing enviously at the southern tip of Africa, where diverse award-winning Rhône-style wines are proudly catapulted into the world from its continental, coastal, and Mediterranean climates.

This small revolution is partly due to the sector’s dynamic and innovative stakeholders, which include Víssimo. The company is one of the largest wine e-tailers in Latin America, through its Evino platform, and is also one of the biggest importers of international wine in the Brazilian market after buying major Brazilian importer and wine merchant Grand Cru in 2021.
