Bibendum bolsters English wine portfolio with two new producers

Published:  10 May, 2018

Bibendum has bolstered its English wine portfolio with two new producers - Greyfriars and Litmus.

Joining the portfolio ahead of London Wine Week (26th May to 3rd June), the duo joins Bibendum’s existing portfolio of English producers, including Ridgeview and Coates & Seely, to create an eight-strong selection.

The latest addition would build on soaring sales of English wine at Bibendum, which said sales leaped 139% in volume the past year (internal data - 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2018), and would help customers make the most of the “significant sales opportunity” in time for English Wine Week.

“There are clear signs of organic growth. After years of hard work from producers at cellar door and in the trade, we now have customers asking for English wine, where previously it was all about getting the word out to them – this is a very significant change,” said Joseph Arthur, fine wine business development executive, Bibendum.

The business was very much looking forward to support its customers with the introduction of new UK producers as the category continued to grow, he added.
