Hattingley Valley announces new partnership with Enotria&Coe
This week Hattingley Valley has announced the appointment of Enotria&Coe as their UK distributor.
The move signals Hattingley’s ambition to accelerate growth and match their increasing volume by working with a larger company on a more exclusive basis.
Gareth Maxwell, Sales & Export Manager for Hattingley Valley, says:
“We have worked well with Liberty Wines since 2013 and they have a great business backed by a superb team. However, the opportunity to work with such a long-established business as Enotria&Coe as their lead English sparkling wine product was too great for us, as a young, fast-growing business, to pass up. We felt that Enotria&Coe have the capacity to be able to cope with our increasing volumes and ambitions.”
Maggie MacPherson, English Wine buyer at Enotria&Coe, adds:
“The growth in English sparkling wine has been well documented over the past couple of years and I am thrilled that we will be increasing our own stellar line up of English wine producers with Hattingley Valley. Their dedication to innovation is very exciting and of course the wines speak for themselves and are outstanding. It is both of these qualities that highlight why Hattingley Valley are a natural fit within our premium wine and spirits portfolio.”
The addition of Hattingley complements Enotria&Coe’s portfolio of major producers including Henschke, Trimbach, Yealands, Fontanafredda, Ferrari & Planeta.
Hattingley Valley was created by Simon Robinson, a successful, retired city lawyer who recognised England’s potential for premium quality sparkling. In a very short period of time, the winery became one of the UK’s largest, has won multiple trophies and medals and exports 40% of its wine around the globe. Simon is also a well-respected figure in the industry and is the Chairman of English Wine Producers. His head winemaker Emma Rice is the first woman to win the UKVA best winemaker of the year on two occasions.
Enotria&Coe is a full-service Wine and Spirits Company, with the UK’s most comprehensive, premium and inspired portfolio which has evolved from its Italian Old World roots into an outstanding global wine list, covering 1,600 wines from over 260 producers and combining Old and New World wines which include a number of iconic names.
