We believe in mixing cultures and ideas.
Because we are all actors of change!
Bottli launched in 2019 and has since built a loyal wine-loving customer base. Our goal is to create personal relationships between our customers and winemakers by sharing their story & philosophy.
French-born, Adelaide-based founder and CEO Nathalie Taquet displays a passion for wine and didn’t stop just with Bottli. In 2020, she created another startup eBottli, which uses the latest technologies to guard our premium wine industry from export counterfeits and help grape growers and winemakers through their digital transformation to increase their profitability.
“At Bottli, we believe that a good bottle of wine should bring joy and spread happiness for both the drinker and the winemaker,” says Nathalie Taquet. “I started Bottli to deliver the best French and Australian wines from small-scale artisan winemakers after tasting each of them because the idea is to share experiences.”
Nathalie and her family moved to Australia three years ago and started in Sydney but the South Australian government provided attractive incentives to base Bottli and eBottli in Adelaide through the new SISA (Supporting Innovation in SA) program, so the family made the move. Although both businesses have been disrupted by COVID-19, Nathalie has a strong vision for the future for both Bottli and eBottli.
Later in 2020, eBottli was really picking up and Nathalie was lacking time to keep up with bottle reviewing and deliveries, so Bottli was put on hold. However, due to increasing demand from winemaker partners and loyal customers, the decision has been made to re-launch Bottli in 2021, with a different format allowing much more flexibility for both producers and customers.
“We have a more sustainable model which will roll out smoothly as we grow. All I wanted was to figure out a simple way to connect consumers directly with winemakers in a way that everyone can benefit from; low cost and low prices without compromising on the standard of the wine I was featuring. We choose our partners carefully and we make sure we conduct business in an ethical way.”
“I really look forward to seeing people sharing and exchanging tips on our platform and witnessing a new community of wine lovers grow.”
