Thierry Durand TheWineAgency
Thierry Durand TheWineAgency is a rather new yet very innovative player selling wines on the net targeting the Belgium market.

What I do like about TheWineAgency:
- The website itself: colourful nice design
- It's easy to chose a wine : many search parameters are proposed. I especialy like the "typicité" (taste) search tool. For amateur, it's an easy way to find wine based on one's tasting expectation.
- The food & wine match-making advices : again, another tool to select the right wine for your diners!
- The reasonable delivery cost (Belgium)!

It's true that you may feel a bit overwhelmed with all the information available on TheWineAgency. I am quite sure that the layout will continue to evolve giving the relative youth of the store.

I advise you check TheWineAgency as you'll find a certain number of wines I have already tasted and enjoyed at competitive price : chateau d'aiguilhe, Clos des fées (Hervé Bizeul), Touraine Sauvignon (François Chidaine)...

By the way...
I happened to meet with the management (Thierry Durand) of TheWineAgency to exchange about wine and share a nice rosé (M de Minuty). You'll find below link the last newsletter in which I have been interviewed. Feel free to subscribe.
