Enotria&Co expands Californian portfolio with Louis M Martini

Published:  22 March, 2018

Enotria&Co has signed a deal as the exclusive UK distributor of Napa Valley producer Louis M Martini.

The deal, which takes place with immediate effect, includes Enotria&Co distributing the E&J Gallo owned portfolio across both the on and off-trade in the UK.

Known worldwide as the ‘King of Cabernet’, Louis M. Martini’s boasts to have some of the greatest expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon in its portfolio, made using grapes harvested from some of Napa and Sonoma’s most coveted sites - including the Monte Rosso vineyard.

Now was the perfect time to debut the range in the UK, said Scott Kozel, vice president of coastal winemaking, E&J Gallo, adding there had “never been a better time for Californian wine”.

“Our wines are readily embraced by the UK market and there is a growing awareness of their quality amongst British consumers,” he said, creating an iconic portfolio of wines that held true to the vision of its founder.

“In selecting the best grapes from Northern California’s leading vineyards, we are crafting a range of outstanding wines that celebrate luxury, excellence and enduring legacy.”

Acquired by E&J Gallo in 2002, Louis M Martini was founded in 1933 by Italian born Martini, who started winemaking a “the best grapes make the best wines” premise.
