TCE_Invite_7March_test (2)

The CollectEve is a collaboration of female-founded wine importers working across the UK. They will be holding their inaugural tasting at 67 Pall Mall on 22nd April 2024.

This event is a product of many years of work, collaboration, enthusiasm and vision in the making. The CollectEve tasting will be showcasing wines and saké from twelve specialist importers and featuring the dynamic and diverse work that they do with producers from across Western and Central Europe, the USA, Canada, South America and Japan. Expect a range of 150+ wines on show, all with a strong focus on sustainability, considered farming and the true expression of terroir.

A note from co-founder Claire Thevenot MS, “The idea of The CollectEve came about while setting up my wine importing company, Vins-Clairs. It is already incredibly daunting to launch something like this alone and there seems to be very limited or accessible guidance out there. However, I knew I could rely on my network of colleagues and friends in the wine importing industry. A few incredible souls went above and beyond, and amongst these were some wonderful female importers.

Something clicked and I started to list all the women-led companies I knew, in a view to organise a collaborative tasting. Fast forward to now: The CollectEve is a group of 12 wine and saké importers; some of us are at the beginning of our journey while others have more experience. We come from a host of different backgrounds, nationalities, expertise and focus which makes it all even more exciting. ”
