Bibendum and its associated wine sales companies, PLB and Walker & Wodehouse, has become the largest importer to date to join the Bottlebooks community. Introducing the Bottlebooks platform will allow the three companies to collect accurate wine data from suppliers and share throughout the businesses, ensuring that wine information communicated to customers is 100% correct 100% of the time.

The UK wine trade was introduced to Bottlebooks as the digital directory of the London Wine Fair in May this year. Bottlebooks is a universal wine data solution designed to solve the significant challenges associated with information exchange in the wine industry.

The online software platform allows wine businesses to exchange comprehensive product and marketing information in a standard format.

Since 2013 Bottlebooks has been working with producers, importers, event organisers and other wine professionals to identify the unique data requirements of the wine trade. To date, more than 3,000 wine businesses have exchanged wine information using Bottlebooks.

Andrew Shaw, buying director for Bibendum, PLB and Walker & Wodehouse, explains, “We’re looking forward to developing our partnership with Bottlebooks to contribute to an industry standard for wine data exchange. Bottlebooks will drive data quality across all our teams, ultimately helping our customers be even more successful selling our products.”

According to Jonathan Harclerode, co-founder and CEO of Bottlebooks, “Bibendum is one of the UK’s leading wine businesses and understands the challenges that all wine businesses have collecting and disseminating wine information and the unnecessary costs it creates. The insights and support of Andrew, James, and their entire team is a big step forward for the initiative.”

James Scott, head of Business Intelligence at Bibendum, PLB and Walker & Wodehouse, says, “Bottlebooks can help our suppliers store all of their information in one place, input once, yet accessible to all international partners. Having a single version of the truth around product and supplier data will also allow us to deliver greater levels of information and content to our customers, via our product sheets, websites and apps.”
