By James Wells at ProWein in Dusseldorf
Bill Hardy, the great grandson of Thomas Hardy, has visited ProWein 2012 and claimed that Accolade Wines has secured the number one position in the UK market with the Hardys brand.
The fifth generation winemaker and Hardys wine ambassador, said it was "bloody exciting" to see the showing of Australian wine at ProWein this year.
Hardy commented that the German market continues to display a price focus with the average price of wine in all channels remaining at 2,50 Euros with imported wines only representing eight per cent of the market.
