India's oldest and largest vintner, Champagne Indage, has acquired UK-based supplier Darlington Wines.

The purchase, announced earlier this week, follows Indage's purchase of Australian premium boutique winery Vine Crest, situated in the Barossa valley, last week. The Indian company also acquired two other Australian wineries - Thachi wines and the Loxton winery - last year, and is on the lookout for adding South African wineries to its portfolio.

Darlington's imported wines could now be sold under Champagne Indage's labels, while the Indian company will now control Darlington's bottling and warehousing facilities and distribution network in the UK and Europe. The financial details of the purchase were not disclosed.

"The consolidated assets (of Darlington) will give us large scale route to market efficiency in a price competitive market such as the UK, not to mention the positive relationships with large institutional buyers," said Champagne Indage's MD, Ranjit Chougule.

Champagne Indage has 36 brands of red, white, rose and sparkling wines, and last year produced around 15m litres in its facilities in Narayangaon, Maharashtra,
