Treasury Wine Estates will import Chateau Minuty's rose range into the US

Treasury Wine Estates has taken over Diageo's position as US importer for Provence rosé producer Château Minuty.

The company, which closed its purchase of a swathe of Diageo's wine assets last week, confirmed yesterday that it will handle three of Minuty's expressions in the US. Diageo had assumed importation privilege in 2014.

The French wine producer is one of the best-selling rosé brands in the US, Treasury noted, growing at a double-digit rate.

The three wines set to be handled by Treasury are the 2015 rosé and Prestige Rosé, and last year's Rosé et Or. They retail at between US$20 and $40 per bottle and are available nation-wide.

Château Minuty is owned by the Matton-Farnet family.
