UK wine distributor Berkmann Wine Cellars has expanded its premium portfolio with the addition of two new complementary English agencies: Everflyht from Sussex and Hundred Hills from Oxfordshire.
These additions will see Berkmann Wine Cellars triple its English sparkling wine offering, joining Hampshire-based Cottonworth, which joined the distributor in 2014.
Through the addition of these new agencies, Berkmann Wine Cellars will harness the current relevance of English wines, a category which has experienced strong growth in recent years.
Alex Hunt MW, purchasing director of Berkmann Wine Cellars, says: “With this wider offering we can now truly celebrate the variety and quality of English wines available. Each of these vineyards possesses its own unique terroir; we are excited to share this diversity with our trade customers and, through them, their clients.
“It’s an interesting point for consumers – how English sparkling wines can communicate their individual origins through their varied flavour profiles, as we look to different parts of the country. We are confident these wines will continue to play an increasingly prominent role on lists, especially as there is so much strength in the English sparkling wine category.”
