Who we are?
Peraco Oy is the fulfillment of two passionate wine enthusiast, Pekka And Rami long time dream. We have spent a lot of time and money by ourselves for deepening our wine knowledge as a hobby during the last 10 years. Little by little we had the idea for our own business. Information we have obtained from the literature as well as by a number of travelling to different production areas.
For the beginning, we were interested to learn about Finnish alcohol monopoly products. As we did not know from anything better. A trip to Paris at 2008 was mid blowing experience. We visited at Salon International de l’Agriculture-exhibition at Porte de Versailles. Here we could find many new areas and grapes to us. As exhibition was showing each department individually, we could manage the information flow.
By this experience, our hobby went totally into new direction. The narrow selection at Alko, did not meet our urge for new. We began buying local wines on business and family trips around Europe. Knowledge from local wines were searched before and after the trips. Different terroirs, climates, grapes and even vinification methods enchanted us by offering more and more great wine experiences. These features seemed offering lifelasting learning scene. Reasonable quality/price ratio for local wines, compared to Alko’s product was not slowing our urge for local wines as their prices topped many times Alko’s price levels.
Peraco’s business idea is based to our own experiences. We want to challenge our customers for seeking new flawors instead familiar ones. Even shifting to new area with same grapes, gives different experience. We have selected our wineries by ourselves by visiting their wineries. We have tasted each and every wine, discussed with growers from their philosofies for wines. We believe that by as close as possible for natural vinification, wine allows to its taster a chance to recognize its origins.
