US: Australia's Emu hits US
Constellation Wines has launched the first offerings from Australia's Emu Wine Company in the US.
The wines are distributed by Pacific Wine Partners, an arm of Constellation Wines US, which produces premium wines from California and imports wines from Australasia. The first Emu wines to be available this summer in the US will be a Frankland River Shiraz and a Tasmania Riesling.
Sally Osborne, marketing director at Pacific Wine Partners, said: "We're excited to launch the Emu Wine Company wines and to bring a piece of Australia's history and emerging wine regions to wine lovers in America."
The 2004 Shiraz from Frankland River in Western Australia will be available in selected US states at around US$28. The 2005 Tasmania Riesling will sell at around US$20.
