    “My name is Valerian Khubulava, Russian executive with a vast food industry background. As I have become more tired from the corporate life an idea to start a winery came to be not such a big surprise. I bought some vineyards in the Republic of Georgia and started to look around for a proper experience to obtain. In the course of my exploration of the matter it appeared that the New Zealand winegrowers’ and winemaking expertise might be the most interesting based on the remarkable success of their wines in a world market in a very short period of time. Thereby I came across Mr. Colin Ford and his ‘Winework Solutions’ based in Auckland. So I contacted Colin with the request to organize me a week-long professional study tour in Marlborough valley. It was a very difficult task because I needed to meet most important people from the industry – owners, winemakers, enologists, viticulturists, winegrowers and marketing executives. It was also important to meet those people from the different wineries – large, medium, small and boutiques. And I wanted to talk with them, and it was a first week after New Year day – everybody was supposed to have holidays. Mr. Ford made a remarkable job. He managed to put together almost 15 meetings with all kind of professionals within six days. Above all these meetings were very informal, friendly and extremely cognitive. Colin made possible to meet important people from large companies – Cloudy Bay, Wither Hills, as well as such famous smaller companies like Fromm, Lawson’s Dry Hills, Forrest Estate and many others. The most important thing is that Mr. Ford is not a tour guide at all. Being a real wine professional with international experience he knew most of the people we had met. One of the reasons all those people agreed to meet and to talk to me was that I had been introduced by Mr. Ford. His comments and our conversations helped me a lot in deeper understanding of the philosophy and dynamics of wine industry not only in New Zealand but in the world at large. It is also worth mentioning that Colin is a very educated in many fields person – real gentleman. It was pleasure to spend a week with him on my tour. We talked about many interesting issues and spent an excellent time. He is also extremely well organized; logistics of the tour was perfect. And I also believe that we made good friends.”
