Meanwhile, at Lanchester Wines, Barney Davis has joined as the head of commercial operations in a new role for the company.

He will be working closely with head of sales Mark Roberts and the wider sales teams, to lead the supplier's global buying strategy.

Davis will be primarily responsible for the buying of all bulk wine for the wider County Durham based Lanchester Group which includes Europe's most modern bottling facility, Greencroft Bottling.

Managing director Tony Cleary said Davis will help to ensure continued relevancy within the UK and European marketplaces across all channels and to mark the start of the company's renewed global buying strategy.

"We're working hard to ensure Lanchester Wines is as the forefront of the UK wine sector and are investing heavily in both our people, through the creation of strategic roles such as Barney's, and also our business.

"Over the last three years we've invested over £8million in renewable energy generation to minimise our impact on the environment and reduce the carbon footprint of our products, a quality we know is increasingly important to consumers," he said.
