Casella Family Brands has appointed an exclusive importer for Peter Lehmann Wines in New Zealand.

Giesen Wines NZ will take on import duties of the Australian brand from tomorrow, Casella said this week. It is not immediately clear who is being replaced.

Casella Family Brands' MD, John Casella, said: "The Giesen team have a wealth of experience in the New Zealand market and are highly regarded in the trade for providing highly quality wines."

Giesen will initially import Peter Lehmann wines to New Zealand including Art n Soul, Portrait, Clancy’s, Futures and the Peter Lehmann Masters series, Casella said. The firm bought Peter Lehmann late last year.
