Blog: Chris MercerAustralian Vintage, Constellation deal drawing near?

Chris Mercer | 25 March 2010

The departure of Australian Vintage CEO Dane Hudson may herald the endgame to a merger deal with Constellation Brands' wine arm down under.

Today's announcement that Hudson will leave in May clears the way for a new leader in a merged Australian Vintage and Constellation business in Australia.

Fuelling this fire is further news today that no permanent replacement for Hudson will be announced until "a decision is made concerning the potential merger with Constellation Brands".

Hudson leaves in May. Keep your eyes peeled, folks.

Chris Mercer, Deputy Editor.
