Andrew Guard Wine Imports is a specialist importer and merchant of fine wine and spirits. It is owned and operated by Andrew and Kirsten Guard. We are based in Sydney, Australia and have many years experience in the wine, restaurant and retail trade.
We work with a group of very passionate vignerons who produce original and inspired wine from their unique 'terroirs'. These wines have that extra dimension of character that comes from special winemakers; people of talent, who work hard, but also have that extra feeling and intuition about what they do that shows in their wines.
All the wines we import have been tasted by us so we stand behind the quality of each and every wine we offer. Furthermore we do not use brokers, intermediaries or catalogues when selecting our wines as others do.
To ensure that the wines you drink from us are in optimum condition we use refrigerated transport within Europe, Reefer containers at sea and a fully temperature controlled warehouse.
The winemakers we work with have great demand placed on their
production, some even before it is bottled, by the many Sommeliers in Europe and eager importers from around the world. The reason for this is
the quality of wines they produce and, by virtue of thier limited
production, their rarity.
As nearly all the wines we import are supplied to Australia's finest
Restaurants and Wine Bars, little has been available in the retail area.
Following increasing demand from the members of public who have
contacted us asking to purchase the same wines they have enjoyed whilst
dining out, we have developed this website to enable direct purchases from our cellar to yours.
