Peter Lehmann Wines switches distribution to Hallgarten
Australia’s Peter Lehmann Wines have switched distribution from Enotria to Hallgarten Druitt.
The Barossa Valley wine company wants to expand its independent and on-trade channels and build stronger relationships with its major customers.
Jeff Bond, Peter Lehmann’s general manager, said: “We share a similar philosophy [with Hallgarten] on how best to deliver premium wine to consumers and this new relationship will help us respond to the ever-changing needs of the UK market.”
Hallgarten Druitt’s managing director Andrew Bewes said: “We believe in the inherent strength of the Peter Lehmann brand and that the addition of one of the Barossa’s best known producers will complement our existing stable of premium wines.”
Hallgarten’s portfolio includes Saint Clair from New Zealand; Hamilton Russell from South Africa; Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi from Tuscany; Champagne Moutard and Argentina’s Dona Paula.
