Ventisquero Wine Estates’ True North…South Wines!Written on 04.02.2021, 09:00
Leading Chilean producer Ventisquero Wine Estates has appointed North South Wines as distributor for its Ventisquero brand, encompassing entry level Clasico, through the Grey range and on to the icons: Vertice, Pangea and Enclave.
Francisco Ruidiaz, VWE’s Sales Director UK, comments: “We are really looking forward to working with North South Wines. They have shown themselves to be a dynamic and resilient importer, having gone from strength to strength, in spite of last year’s challenges. As a winery, we are adaptable and innovative and see a natural synergy between our two companies. The future is looking bright for Ventisquero in the UK.”
Established in 1998, Ventisquero Wine Estates rebranded last year to better reflect the contemporary and dynamic nature of the company, and its commitment to sustainable practices. Exporting 1.5 million cases of wine each year, VWE owns vineyards in all of Chile’s most renowned wine regions and has consistently pushed boundaries both geographically and in its winemaking to put new areas, such as the Atacama Desert, on the world winemaking map.
North South Wines describes itself as “not your average wine distributor”, and takes pride in a broad portfolio which combines the classic with the contemporary and offers what the company claims is “incredible value”. Kim Wilson, Managing Director and Founder of North South Wines, says: “We’re delighted to be working with Ventisquero Wine Estates, who we view as one of the highest quality producers in Chile. As a family-owned business, who hold sustainability at the forefront of what they do, they are a great fit for North South Wines’ portfolio, complementing our existing producers such as De Bortoli, The Wine People and Scheid Family Wines, and together with MontGras mean we have a more complete offering from Chile. We are excited to be able to bring their unique offering of award-winning wines to our customers and continue to work with their existing customers.”
