We welcome Kingston Estate Wines to the Santé Wines Victorian portfolio, effective from the 1st July 2014.
Todd Lichti, Managing Director of Santé Wines states “the Kingston Estate and Echelon ranges complement our portfolio perfectly, offering great quality and value from some of South Australia’s finest winemaking regions. We’re looking forward to presenting the wines to our customers.”
“Progressing Victoria to the distribution model aligns the state with our nationwide strategy”, commented Kingston Estate’s Bill Moularadellis, “this is consistent with the growing demand for Kingston Estate in the on-premise trade. Santé Wines will build the on-premise side of the business whilst continuing to offer great support to our existing off-premise customers. The new agreement is a positive step forward and completes our portfolio of top tier distribution agencies.”
Bill Moularadellis continues; “As a family owned winery, we look to develop long term relationships with like-minded distribution partners. Teaming up with Santé reinforces our commitment to build sales and distribution within on-premise and independent retail and ensures we are best placed to tend to our customers’ needs. Their wide distribution base will ensure extensive coverage throughout Victoria with our award winning wines, including our trophy winning Cabernet Sauvignon and six gold medal winning Shiraz”, he said.
