Read about us: As a wholesaler, you need not look any further than the Southern Starz portfolio when entering or expanding your Southern Hemisphere wine selections. The Southern Hemisphere continues to amaze on the quality/value it represents. There has never been a better time as a distributor to build upon this exciting category.
Consistent amongst each of our wine regions, the Southern Starz portfolio offers some of these advantages over our competitors:
PREMIUM, MID-PRICE and VALUE ITEMS- A Complete Range
Our collection provides complete varietal representation at all price points. Whether it’s a premium restaurant needing unique quality wines by the bottle or glass, a large retailer needing consistent volume items, or a boutique retailer wanting something different to set them apart, we can assist! From highly-rated case stack offerings to small production rarities, we have something for every market. Also, our wineries represent the same good price-to-value ratio they enjoy in their home markets. They are authentic estates with planted vineyards with the ideal clonal selection. They represent generations of tradition and a highly sought after international presence.
GLASS POURS- By the Glass Programs Translate to Brand Success
Opportunities abound with the value-for-money that Southern Hemisphere wines offer in the $80-$120/case category. In addition, our portfolio provides numerous options for higher-end glass pours that represent the cutting edge of our category. We are looking for on-premise success to boost customer awareness and help drive retail sales and will work with you to make your list exciting and unique. With a myriad of offerings- complementing every cuisine, the Southern Starz portfolio has something to add to even the most comprehensive wine list. It can also assist in building and expanding newer restaurant programs.
THE APPELLATION ADVANTAGE- All the Major Regions
When building the Starz portfolio of wines, we looked for the best wineries in each area that showcases each varietal that the region is best known. In Australia, we looked for Coonawarra Cabernet, Barossa and McLaren Vale Shiraz, Margaret River Chardonnay, McLaren Vale Grenache, and Rutherglen Fortified Wines. In New Zealand, it was the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, and Waipara Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. South Africa offers the unique Pinotage grape, which is produced best in the Swartland region along with Chenin Blanc. We also recognized that South Africa boasts wide recognition for top tier Cabernet Sauvignon from different wards within Stellenbosch and the exotic Sauvignon Blancs and Chardonnays of Elgin Valley. In Chile, we decided to concentrate on the Casablanca Valley for cool climate Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. In Argentina, we focus on the plush Malbec from Lujan de Cuyo and the elegant Cabernet and Cabernet Franc from the Uco Valley.
