Invivo Wines hopes the Cordoniu appointment will boost its presence in the UK and Ireland

Invivo Wines has partnered with the UK arm of Grupo Codorníu to distribute its wine brands in the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands.

The New Zealand wine company said yesterday (4 January) that Grupo Codorníu will handle its range from next month. Previously, Invivo's wines had only been available in the UK through Averys.com. The new partnership will cover both the on- and off-trade.

Codorníu has been looking to expand its portfolio of agencies outside Spain, adding to its wholly-owned Argentine winery Bodega Septima.

The Invivo range includes Bella by Invivo, a 9% abv Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, and Marlborough Sauvignon blanc, Pinot Gris, and Rose, as well as Central Otago Pinot Noir.
