James Halliday's Wine Companion 2017 Results

"Zonte's Footstep has been very successful since a group of long-standing friends, collectively with deep knowledge of every aspect of the wine business, decided it was time to do something together.

Exports to the UK, Belgium, Sweden, The Netherlands, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore and China."  (p. 754)
