Bueno Bonito is Eddie’s latest project, which is a marriage between his love of delicious coffee alongside Lucy’s delectable Latin American wines.
Lucy Forbes • Wine Guru • Pais Imports
Lucy Forbes has been the gringa amongst Spaniards for the best part of a decade. After doing the flying winemaker thing for a few years, Lucy delved into the Spanish wine scene in Australia working for both The Spanish Acquisition and MoVida Wholesale wine importers. After a tip from a wine writer, Lucy got herself on a plane to Chile with her Chileno buddy Eddie. After meeting a number of inspiring producers and witnessing first hand the spectacularly old vineyards in the South of Chile, she was sold. The true wines of South America needed to come to Australia and she was going to bring them here. Six months later Pais Imports, a boutique South American wine importing business was born.
