Mentzendorff & Coronavirus

Dear friends and colleagues of the drinks trade,

I wanted to take the opportunity to address our customer and send a message of support to all those affected by Coronavirus (Covid 19).

We have all spent this week taking measures to protect our people and our businesses, the like of which none of us have seen in our working lives, COVID -19, unlike the economic crises we have experienced, is unprecedented not only in its nature but also in the speed of its arrival. Let us hope that it will eventually pass as quickly as it arrived. However, at the moment it is clear that the new ways of working, which we are now all settling into, will be with us for the next weeks and here at Mentzendorff we wish to reassure you we remain fully operational; that we have secured sufficient stocks of the wines that we believe you will most require in the days ahead; and that most importantly you can be certain of our continued support. We understand that the support required by different parts of the trade will vary in accordance with the very different impacts on your businesses, please speak to us, we are here for you and our sales team will continue to keep in touch even if they are no longer able to visit you in person.

Personally speaking I have been incredibly impressed by the creativity that the trade has already demonstrated in adapting business models overnight and I have no doubt that I will continue to be amazed by our collective resilience. Let’s look forward to the better days that will follow, until then let’s keep communication channels open and, thanks to technology, we have an array of new means at our disposal to do so. I very much hope that yourselves and your families remain in good health.

Very best regards
