With well over 10,000 Domaines viticoles (Vineyards), it is not surprising that with the varied choice of imported Bordeaux in the Australian market today it is becoming increasingly difficult to not only select the right wine, of the best vintage at the best price but equally to find wine of impeccable provenance.
Established as one of Australia’s premium importers of Bordeaux wines, Bordeaux Shippers sets itself apart by offering you a brilliant selection of Wines with mature parcels ready to be enjoyed at their very best with our guarantee of provenance and optimal cellaring conditions, combined with the excellent support and service that you've come to expect.
Daniel Airoldi DipWSET, the owner of this dynamic company, was born in Nérac in the South West of France, the centre of the Armagnac region. During the early days the family moved to the outskirts of Bordeaux to the town of Blaye. A few years later they moved to Pessac, one of the most famous suburbs of Bordeaux, known for the appellation of Pessac-Léognan and Château Haut-Brion. The Airoldi Family has always been connected to wines, as in every generation, a family member has worked in the industry in various wine-making regions.
Daniel’s first choice of career was cooking and after 15 years following this career in various countries including Australia and owning a restaurant for 3 years, it was obvious that his main interest was to renew his strong ties to wine. So the family moved back to France near Bergerac. Daniel then studied at the “Ecole du Vin de Paris” whilst working for a negociant family based in the south west, and eventually moved to Paris to manage one of their new cellars.
Upon returning to Australia with the experience gained in France by representing Domains and Châteaux unavailable in Australia, Daniel Airoldi quickly identified a need to add more variety to what was already available on the Australian market and bring these wines here. Daniel blends an extensive knowledge of the hospitality industry in Australia and overseas with the world’s wine industry.
Daniel furthered his studies at the Sydney Wine Academy and graduated from the WSET Level 4 Diploma and has now his heart set on the industry pinnacle by studying for the Master of Wine with the Institute of Master of Wine.
With many contacts in the area, Bordeaux Shippers thrives in sourcing the best Châteaux of Bordeaux from its most trusted courtiers and winemakers for your piece of mind and perfect provenance guaranteed.
Daniel continues to regularly travel to Bordeaux and work closely with not only the best wine traders of the “place de Bordeaux” but also directly with the wine growers and Châteaux themselves. This is all part of the Bordeaux Shippers philosophy, to keep in mind the history, character and values of each property and to share the beautiful wines produced by these dedicated and passionate families.
This allows us to offer you not only a continued selection of the monumental Crus classés (classified growth) but also for you to discover some stunning boutique Châteaux and Domaines that rather than reserving Bordeaux wines for special occasions, you can make it an everyday experience...
