NEW ZEALAND: NZ Wines and Spirits wins distribution for Petaluma
Following Lion Nathan's purchase last year of the Petaluma Wine Group, New Zealand Wines and Spirits Limited has announced that it will assume responsibility for sales and distribution of the Petaluma Group portfolio of wine brands in New Zealand, from May this year.
The portfolio of fine wines comprises over 34 wines including Petaluma, Knappstein and Bridgewater Mill.
Brian Croser, chairman of Lion Nathan's wine group says, "This is a natural and constructive move for our brands in New Zealand. Our previous distributors have done a great job in introducing the Petaluma Group wine brands to New Zealanders and we are now looking forward to the support and resources of NZWS to grow our brands further."
NZWS will assume distribution from the current distributors of the Petaluma range; Eurowine, Bennett & Deller, and Vintners (NZ) Ltd, who have managed the brands in the New Zealand market over a number of years.
