The company will oversee the on-trade distribution of fortified wine brands Tio Pepe and Croft in addition to a number of other premium wines owned by the Gonzalez family.

Managing Director of Gonzalez Byass, Martin Skelton, said that the partnership would expand the profile of the brands in the on-trade.

Andrea Ruggeri, Matthew Clark's director of purchasing, said: "Having world renowned and quality brands such as Tio Pepe and Croft on offer to our customers is excellent news for Matthew Clark and we are delighted to have Gonzalez Byass, a historic family business with such immense traditions, as part of our exclusive portfolio."

Other wines that are being added to the new wine list, to strengthen Matthew Clark's Spanish offering, include the Gonzalez Byass Altozano range.

Included in the list is Finca Moncloa from Andalusia and the Viñas Del Vero range, a high quality brand from Somontano, featuring both indigenous and international grape varieties.

Ruggeri added: "We are excited to offer Gonzalez Byass' new Altozano range and be involved in this exciting launch, which is a first in the history of Gonzalez Byass. We are confident that by having these excellent wines available to our customers we will continue to grow our Spanish wine sales."
