We are

Simdi Bev was developed in the 1980s with the aim of providing the hospitality industry with the best possible support service in the supply and distribution of alcoholic beverages. Today we are engaged in marketing and distributing the full range of alcoholic beverages to the resort market. 

PRODUCT RANGE

Wines are the most demanding category and the environment for wines changes more often than any other category.  SIMDI Bev carries a very competitive portfolio and has its own strongholds. We represent biggest names such as Penfolds, Montes, Barton & Gustier, to boutique style small produces such as Vachron, Mosswood, Vincent Girardin and Domain Vernay.

As wines are as delicate as a newly born, we focus much about sourcing (directly from wineries), logistics (all our wine are shipped on reefer), stock keeping (we have the biggest fleet and all air-conditioned and properly insulated warehousing) and FIFO (rotation of stocks). As such, we ensure that we offer optimum quality to our clients. Over two decades SIMDI Bev has maintained its trust with its supplier chain and while we maintain the portfolio, we innovate year on year (YOY) by introducing new labels to the market from the wine belt.
