"There are many great importers, from all over the world, but in the 15 years I was associated with Deborah Gray, she always stood out as the most professional, unfailingly ethical, knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
She is highly respected by all my distributors, retailers and restaurateurs and any time she was in the marketplace, everyone wanted Deborah to visit. Working with Deborah Gray has been one of my greatest highlights in the 30+years I have been in business. If you need help with your business you need Deborah on your team!"

"I have been in the fortunate position of working with Deborah Gray over the past 6 years with two separate wine brands into the USA. I have found her ability to place product, market a brand and relate the story of the vineyard to the distribution channels a huge bonus in getting traction for both of the brands I have been involved with.
Her relationships with the marketplace can only be attributed to her amazing ability to continually service those channels, ensuring a level of brand success that would not normally be possible. It is a real privilege to work closely with someone like Deborah when you are new to the US wine market and I am sure that anyone who embarks upon working with Deborah will reap great rewards."
