Hello! I like your site and was wondering if you could help me track down any wine suppliers (for horeca and systembolaget) in Sweden with Aussie wines on their list? I am having trouble finding them myself with the language barrier and all! My email is: Thanks!

Most Swedish people speak very good English and there should be absolutely no language barrier with Swedish Wine importers.
