We are very pleased to announce that from 1st March 2011 Patagonian wine producers Humberto Canale will be distributed exclusively in the UK by Enotria. Humberto Canale is the longest established Patagonian producer, founded in 1909 in the High Valley of the Rio Negro at 39.2 degrees south in southern Argentina. Pinot Noir and Merlot flourish in the high altitudes, and Canale’s Sauvignon Blanc is regarded as one of the country’s best. The wines will be available to order from 1 May 2011.
Enotria buyer Daniel Hart says
“We’re seeing increasing interest from all channels in premium Argentinean wine and have decided to strategically grow our portfolio to better represent Argentina regionally – much as we do in Australia and South Africa. There is a very strong cultural and gastronomic link between Argentina and Europe, which thanks to our strong restaurant focus we’re well placed to build on.
“The whole South American category is really hotting up for us this year, as Canale joins other new recruits Vina Leyda and Vina Falernia from Chile, and Vina Vistalba and Tomero also from Argentina.”
Humberto Canale Director Guillermo Barzi Canale says:
“We are delighted about this new relationship with Enotria, they will be putting the focus we were looking for our products in the UK and we are sure we will be able to achieve our goals with them”.
Come and meet Guillo Barzi Canale at table 59 the Enotria Annual Tasting at One Marylebone, London NW1 on Monday, 7 March.
