Flint Wines has been appointed the exclusive UK distributor of Canadian wineries Le Vieux Pin and La Stella.

The deal, which marks the first Canadian wines to join Flint Wines’ portfolio, will see the wine importer take on distribution across both the on and off-trade with immediate effect.

Located in the Okanagan valley, famous for its unique desert micro climate in British Columbia, Le Vieux Pin’s wines are influenced by the traditional French winemaking along with the New World character distinct to the region, while its sister winery La Stella is located in Osoyoos Lake and draws its inspiration from the traditions of winemaking in Italy.

The wineries fitted “perfectly" with Flint Wines portfolio, said the company, adding now felt like the right time to “push the Canadian button”.

“The Okanagan Valley has become a popular destination for wine. This is an exciting move for Flint and we are very proud to start this adventure with Le Vieux Pin and La Stella,” said buying director Jason Haynes.

Last month, Flint Wines signed a deal as the exclusive UK distributor of Santa Barbara County cult winery Mail Road.
