Our History

Boutique Wines Asia started in April of 2010 with João Gago. 

Together with both Cottini and Bergamaschi Italian families, João Gago, from Portugal, founded the company’s project, a one-of-a-kind dream to bring premium boutique wines to Asia. João started his path in L´Oreal, and once in the Far East, he embraced a challenge in the wine business working for ASC Fine Wines, China’s largest wine importer. This experience gave him a particular insight about China, to define the guidelines to found BwA. 

In August 2014, the Compañía Vinícola Norte de España – CVNE, became the majority shareholder of the company. BwA focuses now on taking its business to the next step in the import and distribution of top quality wine in China.
