HALEWOOD SIGNS DEAL WITH BONFILS WINES
Halewood Wines & Spirits has secured a deal to distribute celebrated French wine brand Bonfils in the UK, a move that will bolster its award-winning wine portfolio.
Family-owned Bonfils offers a notable selection of varieties from the prestigious wine growing region of Languedoc-Roussillon. The decision to incorporate Bonfils into the Halewood fold completes the substantial offering, which now covers wines from celebrated wine growing regions around Europe and across the New World.
Andrew Turner, Director of Wine for Halewood Wines and Spirits, says: “Bonfils wines represent the renowned appellations of the south of France that are popular with customers, as well as championing lesser known wines that the trade will now have the opportunity to discover and enjoy. This latest deal means that the number of wines offered by Halewood and its agencies has more than doubled in 2017.”
Founded in 1870 by Honorine Bonfils, the business has stayed in the family for an impressive six generations. The estate as a whole has 17 winemaking properties, a constellation of Châteaux and Domaines, totalling more than 1,600 hectares of vines.
Going forward, Bonfils will join the Halewood wine portfolio, which was recently hailed for its superb quality after winning an outstanding 28 international medals, including the prestigious Gold award at the International Wine Challenge.
Wines distributed in partnership with Halewood are available to the on-trade and independent specialist retailers and offer a selection of varieties, styles and price points.
