About Capito Wines
I AM PROUD OF AND PASSIONATE ABOUT THE WINES I REPRESENT. SMALL PRODUCERS WITH GREAT PURPOSE.
Capito Wines is Melbourne based wine agency representing small batch, high quality, family owned Australian vineyards producing wines that are characterised by remarkable taste, craftmanship and provenance.
Capito Wines was established by Andrea Neilson in late 2011.
Having completed a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree at The University of Melbourne, followed by roles in shipping and almost 10 years with the Australian Trade Commission, Andrea decided it was time for a career change. Having always been passionate about all things vinous, she made her foray into the wine industry in 2008, joining Twelve Bottles, an Italian wine importer and wholesaler. Fast forward three years, and loving her work, Andrea decided it was time to go out on her own. ‘I wanted to select myself the vineyards to represent – small but high quality family owned Australian vineyards that I believed in – with integrity and a story to tell. Small batch wineries who did not yet have a footprint here and who would be overlooked in big portfolios’ – and hence Capito Wines was born.
‘Capito’ means ‘understood’ in Italian and represents Andrea’s love of all things Italian.
Capito Wines has developed a quality portfolio of boutique wineries from Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and Canberra District.
The wines are warehoused in Melbourne. Delivery to metropolitan Melbourne is generally next business day.
Andrea highly values her customer relationships and is driven by excellence – delivering personal, knowledgeable and top quality service at all times.
