wine in motion is a well-established importer for fine wines from oversea, located in Bavaria (South Germany), currently specialized in wines from New Zealand, Australia, Canada and California with an experience of more than 20 years. The managing director Florian Berger was a pioneer for publicizing fine wines from New Zealand in Germany many years ago, when these were still a rather unknown, hidden treasure in Europe. Today, we work as a sworn team of wine enthusiasts with the target to bring fine wines from oversees closer to European wine lovers.
Our philosophy is to sell only high-quality wines, mainly from family-owned wineries, with a very high price-performance ratio. We work with producing partners who enjoy an excellent reputation in their home countries. This, combined with our full logistic services, makes the wines particularly interesting for our customers, be it trade, gastronomy, hotel industry, wine training companies like sommelier schools and wine seminar providers or consumers.

Discovered the incomparable, great wines of New Zealand in 1999 and brought them to Europe as one of the pioneers. His specialty is international wine logistics from the most remote regions of the planet, from winemakers in “Far Far Away” to your home on the kitchen table.
Assistant to the GM
Is the backbone of the office, responsible for the process management and all incoming and outgoing shipments. Born in France she worked as a sales team manager for some time before taking over a more important role as family manager in Germany. After the position at wine in motion became vacant she didn’t really apply for the job but it’s hardly imaginable that there could be anybody better qualified. Marie loves good wine and food and is our corporate identity in person.
As a security manager at wine in motion he is also looking after free and uncontrolled running children in the office. Since he is in charge no peddlers, insurance reps or missionaries of small religion communities have offered any of their services or products here anymore. He is a great fan of sausages, alive chicken and squeaking plastic toys.
