More About Hop & Vine

I just wanted to say how much we appreciate the incredible speed and flexibility that Hop and Vine have provided service.  As a small place that doesn't have a lot of storage or sell as much as the bars we can't hold a lot of stock.  So it's important to us that we are able to order less stuff, but a bit more often.  To have our order show up the same day is out of this world.  I was so tired of having to wait sometimes weeks for product to come from other vendors, a lot of times with messed up orders, backorders, broken stuff and orders that were mysteriously "refused".  This is why we've gone with you guys for more of our wine.  Ordering is simple, we can get mixed cases and they arrive in a snap!  What more could we ask for?  Just awesome.  Thanks again!

I’ve just discovered your pilgrims cider. Usually I don’t buy any ciders in nz local or imported because they are all crap. My husband is a recent import from Somerset Uk. I spent some time there as well. Since we have been back in nz the market has been flooded with ‘cider’  that is like lolly water or Rtds at best. I am so happy to have found yours at the supermarket today. It is like a true cider you get from the West Country, aromatic, dry and delicious. Finally a cider I can enjoy. 
So congratulations to you all, it’s a fantastic product.

Hop & Vine consistently provide excellent and personal service, making them one of the easiest and most pleasant distributors in NZ to deal with. Megan, Terry and Carole are wonderful people with a great range of products.

I have dealt with Hop & Vine for a number of years and I am always impressed by how seriously they take their product knowledge and communication with me, the client. I am always kept up to date on what product is available and what would best benefit our business. Great company to deal with!

We have been lucky enough to have been working with Terry, Carole and Megan for almost 10 years between our old place and now Twenty Seven Steps. They have all always gone the extra mile in showcasing their banging portfolio and getting it to us. I cannot recommend them as suppliers and people highly enough!

Integrity / reliability / consistency and damn good service is how I would describe Hop and Vine Distribution! 

After 15 plus years dealing with Terry and Carole, and latterly his expanding team of professionals, the bond just gets stronger and together we have grown, thank you. You are a champion team!

The liquor industry is a very complex one requiring relationships built on trust, we trust Hop and Vine as our distributor and Hop and Vine’s customers trust in them also. They are an important cog in the wheel of our mutual successes.

We look forward to a confident future together.

"Terry & Carole from Hop and Vine Ltd have played a major role in the creation of the Green Dolphin wine list.  In 2004, Terry turned up on the doorstep, offering his portfolio of wines to us, eight years later his wine portfolio makes up 90% of the Green Dolphin wine list, including the reserve list. Terry's straight up attitude has always been valued highly to us, as well as Carole's creative input on the wine lists.  Hop and Vine supply boutique style wines that you would normally not see in supermarkets shelves. This is important to us when created a point of difference to our clients.  We would highly recommend Hop and Vine to anyone! Thank you, Terry & Carole,

Hop and Vine is one of my go-to distributors when we are looking for something new to add to one of our lists or opening a new place.
The portfolio is concise but solid in quality, the reps are always fantastic and accomodating, delivery is fast, and the little extra perks like staff training is a bonus.

Hey just wanted to say I placed an order for two cartons of the yuzu 6pk today & it arrived comically fast. I’ve only 1 other vendor that delivers that fast & that’s aunt dai dumplings in about 40 minutes after the order is placed. Hop&Vine a close 2nd. 

On shelf now. Kudos to your dispatch team for how fast they operate.
Absolutely incredible.
