Italy-based wine group Bosca has parted company with India's UB Group, its distributor in the Indian market.

Bosca, which has had a winery in India since 1970, is one of the oldest and most widely recognised wine brands in the country.

Polina Bosca, agribusiness manager at the Italian group, told just-drinks today (21 February) that the two companies had different views on how to grow in India's nascent, but growing, wine market.

"Both of us have an interest in following new and different paths in the effervescent Indian wine market," Bosca said. She refused to comment further on the reasons behind the move but said Bosca would announce its future plans in India "in the next few weeks".

For its part, UB is looking to expand its own presence in the Indian wine market. The company has reportedly set up its first wine subsidiary in the state of Maharashtra, the country's wine heartland.

The company's move is a sign of confidence in India's wine market, where consumption is rising by around 30% a year.
