SOUTH AFRICA: Western Wines sales top £100m
MD, Mike Paul, in South Africa for the launch of Kumala on the domestic market, said Western Wines UK turnover for the year had for the first time topped £100m, of which 60% came from its South African operations.
He said the UK's largest family-owned wine importer outside the US and Australia, was responsible for a third of South African imports. This included marketing agreements with African Terroir, Douglas Green Bellingham, Origin Wines and Villiera.
Paul also hinted that Western Wines would be announcing a new brand in the UK in the next few weeks, but did not want to expand on it until everything was in place.
