I wouldn't buy wine from these companies

I have just added a page to this blog listing companies from whom I would not buy wine.

For a variety of reasons I would not consider buying wine from them. This would apply in particular to ordering wines en primeur.  I would not buy for a variety of reasons: the lack of an established track record, the use of cold calls especially when persistent, charging an upfront commission, selling well above the price these wines can be bought from other companies, lack of hard information about the company – its officers, history etc on websites and brochures, exaggerated and unlikely claims made by recently formed companies. The reasons for not wishing to buy from one of these companies will obviously vary from company to company.
