Agnew Wines have established a partnership with Yarra Valley winery Allinda Wines becoming the official distributor of their wines in the Australian market.
In a first for the company, the team at Agnew have embarked on sourcing a distributer wine label outside their own portfolio. This has been the next logical step for the company who have seen great success in market.
“As the Agnew sales team and customer base continue to grow, a natural progression for us was to expand our portfolio to encompass the best wine regions in Australia and abroad” Agnew Wines Head of Sales and Marketing Rohan Beale said about the new venture.
“Allinda is the first brand outside our existing portfolio that we’ve distributed for and we are extremely excited to commence with such a high quality and innovative producer out of the Yarra Valley,” Beale added.
Produced in the foothills of the Yarra Valley, the Allinda wine collection has, since its inception in 1990 has been utilizing strict organic and biodynamic principles to create their wines. The viticulture team pride themselves on avoiding all uses of fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides on their vines instead using compost teas, fish oil and seaweed extract to feed and nurture their vines which has resulted in improved soil condition and fruit quality.
The wines are also proudly vegan friendly with only purely biological practices used by their highly skilled winemaking team.
These strict practices have in turn paid off for the team with their new vintage wines enjoying great success in wine shows both locally and abroad. Key wine influencers within the market James Halliday and Huon Hooke have also been positive about the wines from the collection.
Agnew Wines are the proud owners and distributors of some of the most notable wines brands out of the Hunter Valley including Audrey Wilkinson, Cockfighters Ghost and Poole’s Rock.
