The CEO of the newly merged wine business of Southcorp and Rosemount Wines said today that the merger had gone ahead to stop the world's spirits giants mounting a takeover bid of the Southcorp business. Chief executive Keith Lambert said: "The major spirit companies had operated to their head room after the Seagram sale so wine would start to attract the spirits companies.
