Vinotria is a leading importer and distributor of Italian wines in South Africa. Since its inception in 2010, it has grown to become a key partner, importer and distributor for Italian wine estates looking to grow their presence in the South African market.

Vinotria was founded by two Italians living in South Africa, Roberto Bottega and Pedro Estrada Belli, who decided to share their passion for Italy and Italian wines with the local market.

Wine selection is done through a detailed assessment of quality during extensive trips to Italy, tastings during the Vinitaly trade fair in Verona and when wines are submitted for consideration. A local panel of tasters further assesses the suitability for the local market and ensures the price quality optimal ratio.
