Liberty Wines has taken on the agency for Hess Family Estates’ Bodega Colomé and Amalaya and South Africa’s Glen Carlou.
Bodega Colomé and Amalaya are both from Salta in northern Argentina, while Glen Carlou is from South Africa’s Paarl region.
The agency was formerly handled by Enotria in the UK.
Christoph Ehrbar of Hess Family Estates said: “These are handmade wines that need to be hand sold. We have been looking for a partner who has the same quality ethos as we do, and we feel that Liberty is the right partner for these estates.”
David Gleave MW, managing director at Liberty Wines, added: “We are delighted to be working with these producers. Hess Family Estates has been seeking to broaden the distribution of these three estates in the premium on-trade and independent off-trade. Given our expertise in these channels, and the quality of our team and customers, I am confident that Liberty will be able to achieve their objectives.”
Liberty Wines will take over the distribution of the Bodega Colomé, Amalaya and Glen Carlou wines on July 1 2012.
Back in May, Hess Family’s Peter Lehmann Wines from Australia’s Barossa Valley moved from Enotria to Hallgarten Druitt.
