Wine in Art
Luca Di Filippo, who has a passion for wine and art, is the creator and founder of GFour and the current President. He is a member committee of CRAPF and, as a wine lover himself, has developed the concept of “WINE in ART” by specializing in personalized labels designed by selected artists.
GFour in Thailand, reaching 20 years of wine love story
GFour commenced its operation in Thailand in 2003. The focus of our company is on the import of quality wines. We enjoy distribution exclusivity from several top wineries and supply our wines to high-end restaurants and hotels all over Thailand.
Over this time, we have been able to build up a solid business foundation consisting of an extensive distribution network supported by a well-trained sales team and long-lasting relationships with private customers and corporates alike.
Thailand itself attracts a significant share of foreign direct investment into Asia. Foreigners and their families visit or move to Bangkok from countries as diverse as Japan, China, Singapore, European countries, the USA, and other parts of the world.
This cultural diversity has turned Bangkok into a culinary and gastronomic center in the region. The international clientele demands the highest standards for quality food and wines. Hotels and restaurants must meet this demand, and at GFour, we assist them by offering the best selection of wines.
More and more consumers look for a wider variety of choices, wanting to experience wines from different origins. We at GFour make it our aim to respond to that demand completely.
Regional wine brand development
As innovative brand builders, GFour is the bridge between global brand strategies and all-important local execution, delivering outstanding performance and long term growth for the brands.
Abstaining from high cost and indeterminate returns of traditional brand investment, GFour delivers results through targeted campaigns and digital awareness.
It is a fundamental principle of GFour that our success is due to great brands and outstanding people producers achieving excellent results. Our people producers are the best ambassadors for our brands by demonstrating their commitment to our company values of trust, caring, passion, and excellence.
Cultural arts & CRAPF support
In Italy, we continue to support the artistic heritage of CRAPF, the birthplace GFour. We are a founding member of the association for the development of arts and culture, enhancing and raising awareness of the artistic and cultural heritage.
The association is funded by its members, which include private companies and public bodies, and works to restore artworks, statues, and buildings requiring urgent attention. Over the last 14 years, more than US$3,5 million has been invested in 12 development and restoration projects.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Formalized in a platform for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), this commitment takes concrete shape through a prerequisite, the respect of all the advocates and four priorities:
- The responsible drinking policy
- Reducing the environmental impact
- Sharing cultures
- Promoting an entrepreneurial culture
For GFour, its employees are the front-line ambassadors of these commitments.
