Hallgarten adds 40 new wines to its portfolio
Hallgarten & Novum Wines has added 40 new wines to its portfolio from 18 different producers from France, Italy, Portugal and Spain.
The additions are part of an extensive update to the importer’s portfolio, which has already seen more than 80 wines added in Autumn 2019, from Armenia, Chile, Georgia, Australia and South Africa.
Jim Wilson, portfolio director, said: “This autumn we have made huge changes to our entire range of wines to ensure our portfolio remains at the forefront of the wine industry. We are hugely proud of what we have discovered in the last 12 months and it is a privilege to be able to show these wines off.
“Our wine buying team, led by Steve Daniel and Beverly Tabbron MW, have picked some unique wines that we are sure will impress the trade in terms of quality, design and price point. As ever we have sought wines that do more than just taste great; each has a unique backstory and provides guests with an experience, not just a glass of wine.”
From France 18 wines have been added including wines from Cotes du Roussillon certified organic producer, Mas Becha. From the Loire there are two producers: Domaine des Forges and Domaine de la Rouletiere.
The importer has ramped up its collection of English wines with new additions from Bolney Estate and the Essex-based New Hall.
New Italian wines include Al-Cantara from the slopes of Mouth Etna in Sicily, and it also now has an orange wine from its current supplier partner, Ca’Rugate. It has also added Carpene Malvioti’s 1924 Prosecco, a vintage reproduction of the first Prosecco label commercialised by the winery in 1924.
From Portugal there is Herdade do Rocim, including some wines made in amphora’ and from Spain it has added leading Garnacha producer Bodegas San Alejandro.
