We are pleased to announce that Deborah M. Gray will be speaking at Australia Trade Tasting on ‘What U.S. Importers are Looking For & How To Keep Them Interested.’
Deborah M. Gray, an Australian native and entrepreneur, founded her U.S. wine importing company, The Australian Wine Connection, in 1992 at a time when women wine business owners were scarce and knowledge of Australian wine was almost nonexistent in the U.S. Her first imports consisted of her family’s brand, The Cowra Estate, and a collection of small, family-owned vineyard brands. Deborah ultimately achieved broad national distribution with a diverse portfolio of iconic, highly rated Australian wines before selling her company in 2007.
Today, Deborah lives in Southern California where the emphasis in her company, Bluestone Wine Solutions, is on consulting and assisting others around the country with their importing needs and portfolios. Her second book, Wine Exporting to the U.S. – Strategies for Success, a comprehensive guide for the foreign wine supplier, will be published in 2015.
Come and Be Inspired by Deborah as she presents useful strategies and tips on “What U.S. Importers are Looking For & How To Keep Them Interested.”
