As a new international entrant to the Texas market not so long ago we certainly appreciated the very helpful advice from Richard and the service from the team at the Gerald Franklin Agency.

The myriad of Texas as well as Federal rules and regulations facing an importer and distributor of wines is a daunting barrier. Richard and the team certainly played a major role in facilitating our access to the market.

We certainly look forward to maintaining the relationship and continuing to build the Texas market for our premium New Zealand family estate vineyard wines.
