Vintage House Wine and Spirits, the distribution house of Angove Family Winemakers has been appointed as the exclusive Australian distributor for Barossa winery Schild Estate.
Vintage House will commence distribution on 1 September 2016 and “completes” the distribution house’s Barossa offering with cult winery Cimicky being in its portfolio since 2003.
Schild Estate has been under the watchful eye of patriarch Ed Schild, who this year celebrated his 60th vintage. The 2016 vintage was also the 30th for Ed’s son Michael and the first for his grandson Angus.
Vintage House said it was “extremely proud and excited to be representing one of the superstars of the Barossa”. Adding that, “the wines to be carried include the flagship Moorooroo Limited Release Shiraz, Cellar Reserve range and the Family Estate range”.
Leanne Chapman, one of Ed’s daughters, said “Joining a successful, national company like Vintage House Wine and Spirits as one of their Barossa partners allows us to support our customers around the country with extremely professional service delivery for our Sales and Marketing and we believe it will allow us to take Schild to a new level here in Australia.”
