McWilliam’s Wines Group Appoint Hallgarten & Novum Wines as Continental Europe Distributor
McWilliam’s Wines Group (MWG) is thrilled to announce the appointment of Hallgarten & Novum Wines to represent their wine portfolio across continental Europe.
The partnership will see Hallgarten & Novum Wines distributing the McWilliam’s table and fortified wines and the iconic Mount Pleasant collections in both on and off premises, outside of the UK.
General Manager APAC & EMEA for McWilliam’s Wines Group Garrick Harvison states: “During an extensive search we were very impressed by Hallgarten & Novum’s experience in many different European markets, and equally by their know-how with Australian fine wines. We needed to find a skilled distributor who could articulate the provenance of our brands and the elegant wine styles the McWilliam’s family has been perfecting for over 140 years - no mean feat. We are sure we have found the right partner.”
“Our wines continue to delight consumers with their distinctly cooler climate styles from some of Australia’s most exciting new wine regions. This, along with our winemaking team’s continuous striving to uphold the McWilliam’s family’s aim of delivering food friendly, elegant and expressive wines, makes for an exciting prospect for the European market,” Mr Harvison continues.
“We are delighted at this partnership,” says Hallgarten & Novum Managing Director Andrew Bewes. “McWilliam’s is exactly the kind of wine partner we look to work with: family-owned and quality-driven, whose provenance and innovation is evident in a stunning line-up of wines. We already have an established and exciting international portfolio and look forward to developing McWilliam’s sales across Scandinavia and Continental Europe.”
Mount Pleasant, which was named Winery of the Year in the Halliday Wine Companion 2017, and its 2011 Maurice O’Shea Shiraz gained 99 points. The Maurice O’Shea, Lovedale Semillon and Rosehill Shiraz are regarded among some of Australia’s most iconic wines.
