This is incredibly useful book for anybody considering importing wine in the USA. For example, maybe you just got back from a tour of small Italian towns and tried some fantastic wines and thought to yourself, "I'll bet I could make some money selling these back home." After reading this book, you'll have an overview of the challenges and work involved, how to avoid common first-timer mistakes, and an overview of how to effectively navigate each step along the way. Ms. Gray draws on long experience in importing and consulting to offer a concise description of the steps a would-be importer should take including building a portfolio, the 3-tier system, packaging and licensing requirements, and finding a distributor. Even a chapter about options for shipping containers. The style is lively and each chapter concludes with a "life-lesson" drawn from the author's experience. The book is thorough without being over-technical (it is an introduction) and should be the first resource examined by anyone thinking of trying a hand at importing wine.

When I was looking to become an importer there were lots of books to chose from, and I was lucky enough to pick this one. It is straight forward, easy to read and understand, and you come away with an extremely good insight into the business. I highly recommend it. There's not only a great deal of common sense, but information built on experience. I'm trying to think of some downsides, but I can't.
