Mateus Rosé to be distributed by Stevens Garnier

Published:  03 September, 2013

Mateus Rosé is to switch UK distributor from First Drinks Brands to Stevens Garnier.

Mateus Rosé is owned by Sogrape Vinhos, which also purchased distribution company Stevens Garnier in 2011. The change will take place from October 1.

Salvador Guedes, president of the family-owned Sogrape company, said: "Since 2011, when Sogrape acquired Stevens Garnier in its entirety, the inclusion of Mateus Rosé in the portfolio of distributed brands was a natural step.

"The great working relationship we have enjoyed with First Drinks Brands has been key in developing Mateus. We look forward to an exciting future built on innovative and challenging plans with this new distribution platform."

Chris Mason, managing director for First Drinks Brands, said: "We have been working closely with Sogrape Vinhos to make the transfer of the brand to Stevens Garnier a smooth and seamless exercise for our customers. We have had a long and successful partnership with Sogrape Vinhos and wish them great success. First Drinks will continue to focus on our portfolio of premium, iconic spirits and Champagne brands."
