Hattingley Valley switches from Liberty to Enotria&Coe

06 June 2017

In a move that is said to signal Hattingley Valley's ambition to accelerate growth and match its increasing volume, the winery has switched its UK distributor from Liberty Wines to Enotria&Coe.

'We have worked well with Liberty Wines since 2013 and they have a great business backed by a superb team,' Gareth Maxwell, sales & export manager for Hattingley Valley, explained.

'However, the opportunity to work with such a long-established business as Enotria&Coe’s 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.'

The addition of Hattingley complements Enotria&Coe’s portfolio of producers including Henschke, Trimbach, Yealands, Fontanafredda, Ferrari & Planeta.

'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,' Maggie MacPherson, English Wine buyer at Enotria&Coe, added.

'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.'

Hattingley Valley was created by retired city lawyer, Simon Robinson 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 and now exports 40% of its wine around the globe.
