Robert Oatley Vineyards (ROV) has signed an agreement with Goelet Wine Estates (GWE) to distribute its Taltarni and Clover Hill brands in Australia.

According to GWE chief executive officer, Adam Torpy, the agreement represents an exciting development for the two-family owned companies.

"ROV have, in a very short space of time, established themselves to be leading marketers to the on-premise and independent retail trade in particular, and our Australian brands fit nicely in their impressive portfolio of premium wine producers," said Torpy.

"ROV have developed a very strong sales force specialising in the on-premise and independent retail trade and we have no doubt they will significantly increase our distribution across the mainland."

ROV has signed on a number of brands recently, including Champagnes Piper-Heidsieck and Charles Heidsieck and New Zealand’s Ara label.

"The Taltarni and Clover Hill labels are prestigious Victorian and Tasmanian offerings that perfectly compliment our Australian portfolio which is based around our own labels Robert Oatley, Wild Oats and Montrose," said ROV chief executive officer, Anthony Roberts.

ROV will begin distribution of Taltarni and Clover Hill from October 1.

Both labels will continue to be available to the trade through broad range of wholesalers.
