Blog: Chris Brook-CarterUnwins winner

Chris Brook-Carter | 14 March 2005

The sale of the UK off license Unwins should have an early positive impact on at least one winemaker.

Palandri Wines, the Western Australia producer based at Margaret River, is 5% owned by DM Private Equity, which announced it had also acquired Unwins last week.

Palandri chief executive Darrell Jarvis said negotiations should result in increased product range presence at Unwins, with sales rising from 2000 cases a year to 8000-10,000. Palandri produces some 290,000 cases a year, most of it exported.
