Champagne Deutz to be distributed by González Byass UK

Published:  18 July, 2013

González Byass UK has been appointed the exclusive distributor of Champagne Deutz with effect from August 1.

Deutz, which was previously distributed by Berkmann Wine Cellars, was founded by William Deutz in 1838 and is situated in Aÿ-Champagne. It joins a line up of brands at González Byass that includes the Quinta do Noval, Jackson Estate, Wirra Wirra and Undurraga.

Fabrice Rosset, chief executive of Champagne Deutz, said he feels there are "good synergies" between the companies as they have both dedicated the past 175 years to making benchmark quality for their respective regions. "I sincerely believe that GBUK can take Deutz to the next level as far as awareness and market presence are concerned," said Rosset.

Martin Skelton, managing director of González Byass UK, said: "That Champagne Deutz should select GBUK to be their sole agent is testament to the reputation this company has built up in a relatively short period as a distributor of premium wine brands. We hope to build on the good on-trade distribution achieved to date.

"Deutz has always been somewhat discreet about its achievements; our job will be to share these secrets with those who appreciate really fine Champagne."
