Nicholson's operate globally, with an initial focus on Italy. Why Italy?
The world's largest producer of wine, all of Italy’s 20 regions, from the Alps in the north to the cusp of Africa in the south, produce wine. Grapes thrive in the many altitudes, climate types and soil conditions provided by Italy’s mountainous and hilly terrain.
The Italian Connection: How we work in Italy
Nicholson's work with a broad sweep of producers, from niche husband and wife teams in Marche using organic methods and natural yeasts offering 11,900 bottles a year, through to the medium and large estates producing 2.5 million bottles annually, we have it covered.
Whatever the winery we work to a shared philosophy of producing and securing quality products, either 'ready to go' branded wines from well known regions/varieties, or new brands and blends.
We work closely with our partners and are very happy to supply prices, volumes available, bottle shots, samples etc. on request. Please contact us for any further information. Meanwhile, why not check out our current selection of private client fine wines?
The History of Italy and the Story of Wine.
Italy is home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world; Etruscans and Greek settlers were producing wine in Italy before the Romans planted their own vineyards in the 2nd century AD, and began pioneering large-scale production, barrel-making and bottling.
With 702,000 hectares (1,730,000 acres) under vineyard cultivation,
Italy accounted for 19 percent of global production in 2018, ahead of France and Spain. Italy's Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MIPAAF) has documented granted ‘authorized’ status to more than 350 distinct grapes, in addition to more than 500 other documented varieties in circulation. So it pays to know what you are doing.
And with experience comes knowledge and having spent decades in the trade, we have a solid roster of satisfied trade and private customers.
