The UK distribution arm of Constellation Europe, Matthew Clark, has teamed up with online wine and spirits outlet in the UK.

The company confirmed that the partnership will see around 200 wines and Champagnes from its wine list being made available to UK consumers to buy on the website from today (22 October). Until now, the wines have typically been available only in the on-trade in the country.

"This is an exciting development for Matthew Clark and is also a service we will offer to our customers for their clientele," said Christina Brown, Matthew Clark's director of wine. "We hope to extend this proposition into other market sectors and explore ways to make some of our exclusive wines available to the end consumers."

Adam Houlding, managing director of The Purveyor, added: "Matthew Clark represents the only partner for this exciting development in the wine industry. Offering the greatest breadth and depth in their range of quality wines, alongside the most dynamic supply chain management in the industry, Matthew Clark have the essentials to meet and exceed our customer's high expectations."

The deal will be officially launched at The Wine Show in London, which runs from today until Sunday.
