Bodegas LAN appoints Stevens Garnier as UK distributor

Published:  14 September, 2012

Sogrape owned Spanish winery Bodegas LAN, has appointed Stevens Garnier as its main agent in a bid to broaden its distribution.

The multi-channel agent Stevens Garnier, which is also owned by the Portuguese company Sogrape, will distribute the complete range of Bodegas LAN wines with immediate effect.

Bancroft Wines, which for the last eight years has been selling a selection of the range from Bodegas LAN, will continue to supply its established customers and will remain an essential part of its UK distribution.

Enrique Abiega, chief exectutive officer of Bodegas LAN, said: "Bodegas LAN has a broad range of premium Spanish wines and award-winning Riojas. The acquisition by Sogrape brings access to Stevens Garnier which will allow us to increase our offering and carefully manage our distribution channels in the important UK market.

He added: "The use of more than one distributor will ensure that we can reach all customers and provide a continued high level of service. Bancroft Wines has given us a great start and we are pleased they will continue to work with Bodegas LAN and Stevens Garnier in the future."

Sogrape acquired Oxford based Stevens Garnier in October 2011.
