Gonzales Byass signs distribution deal with Domaine Jones

Published:  20 May, 2018

Gonzales Byass has signed a deal as the exclusive UK distributor of Languedoc-Roussillon winery Domaine Jones.

The deal, which will see the wines become available through Gonzales Byass from July this year, includes distribution to the on-trade and independent sectors.

Being family owned and with a “manageable portfolio” of estates, Gonzales Byass was a “good fit” for Domaine Jones, said co-owner, Katie Jones, who started the business with her husband in 2009.

“Until now I have been handling sales myself, but as demand grows, I have realised that I could do with some help. We have many loyal friends and followers in the UK, and the Gonzale Byass team will work with us to move to the next level and reach even more consumers,” she said.

Since the beginning, the UK had been the winery’s largest market, she added.

All the Domaine Jones wines are produced exclusively from hand-picked grapes grown on 12 hectares of old vines on the steep mountain slopes, resulting in low yields and extraordinary quality.

Martin Skelton, MD, Gonzalez Byass UK, said: “Both Katie and her wines are packed full of personality, warmth and charm, and represent the very best of what can be produced in the Languedoc. Domaine Jones is a fantastic addition to our portfolio and will enhance our range of top quality wine estates.”
