Brown-Forman has signed its first Southern Hemisphere wine. The company has agreed to distribute Distell's Durbanville Hills brand in the UK through its Brown-Forman Wines Europe wing.

Three wines will be included in the initial range - a Sauvignon blanc, a Merlot and a Shiraz - with prices ranging between GBP6.49 and GBP6.99 a bottle.
 
It is also the second Distell brand to be distributed by Brown Forman, the first being Amarula Cream, which it has been distributing in the US since 2001.

Brown-Forman Wines Europe recorded sales of over 1m cases in the UK last year and distributes the corporation's own brands, Fetzer Vineyards from California and Bolla from Italy.

After extensive market research the Durbanville Hills brand has received a packaging makeover and launched into both the on- and off-trade in the UK.
