Undurraga, the Chilean winery, is to switch its UK distribution to Gonzalez Byass.

The new deal will start on 1 March, Gonzalez Byass announced today (20 December). Moreno Wines currently distributes Undurraga in the UK, a spokesperson for Gonzalez told just-drinks.

“We believe that Gonzalez Byass will take the Undurraga brand to the next stage of development in the UK,” said Undurraga's GM Ernesto Müller.

Gonzalez's UK portfolio already includes Quinta do Noval, Wirra Wirra and Jackson Estate wines and a number of port and sherry brands. In April, it released Tio Pepe En Rama sherry.
