Shaw Vineyard, a boutique fine wine producer based in New York state, has signed a distribution deal with Elmira Distributing.

Elmira will distribute Shaw wines across the state to hotels, bars, restaurants and retailers, Shaw said yesterday (1 July).

"Shaw Vineyard has gotten heavy industry buzz in its first few vintages, receiving very favourable Wine Spectator & Wine Enthusiast ratings," said Shaw, which produces 3,000 cases annually.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
