Arnon Grunberg, Dutch writer-
Trade is letting possession change from owner that fast, you don’t even know where the possession is “.
Have you ever wondered how the wine you’ve bought gets on the shelves of the stores?
There is a whole network of buyers and sellers behind this. This goes for every country. I was visiting Deltas Wines in Waddinxveen in the Netherlands. This is one of the largest wine importers in the Netherlands. The storage for their wines is huge. This distribution center has seen many of the wines that the Dutch encounter in the supermarket, wholesale- and wineshops. Chances are that your wine once has also been located here 9 if you are Dutch of course;).
As a consumer just a nice fact to know. Good that there is such a network.
Of more importance for you as a consumer is that you can go to your favorite wine store and can get good professional advice about your wine and your wine choice. But now you know how it works on the top of the chain.
