Peterborough-based Oakham Ales has acquired nearby Bellwether Wines, which supplies to the licensed on-trade within a 35-mile radius of the region.
The Bellwether Wines name has been retained to become the wine division of Oakham Ales. It has appointed Warren Ball, Oakham Ales' wine director, who has over 20 years' experience in the wine industry, to run the new division.
It has also appointed Michael Posnett as wine co-ordinator. Posnett has been involved with Bellwether Wines since its launch in 2009.
Adrian Posnett, Oakham Ales managing director, who joined the company in 2010 to implement a long-term growth plan, said: "The acquisition of Bellwether Wines provides us with a fantastic opportunity to develop a wine portfolio alongside our ever increasing cask ale business."
