May takes over Wine Portfolio business

Published:  23 July, 2008

Garland joins the F&E May team

F&E May has taken over the business of The Wine Portfolio and intends to use the name as one of its trading trading titles. Its core business is servicing the on-trade, and recently it was appointed an "ambassador" for Robert Mondavi. Two years ago May purchased Wine Direct Ltd, a specialist wine trading company offering next-day delivery in the UK, which was felt to be a good launch pad for e-business and an attempt to enter the corporate sector. "A similar relaunch was felt necessary to revitalise our wholesale business," said Jeremy Randall, MD of F&E May. "Tim Garland joins the team bringing his years of wine trade and brand handling experience to F&E May," said Randall.
