DBR Staff Writer Published 04 December 2012

Esporao, a Portugal-based family-run winery, has selected Barwell & Jones to distribute its wines in the UK.

Effective from 1 December 2012, Barwell & Jones serves as sole UK agency for Esporao winery and handles wines produced from two of its estates - Herdade Do Esporao in Alentejo and Quinta dos Murças in the Douro.

Some of its wines include Monte Velho, Alandra, Vinha da Defesa, Esporao Reserva, Monocastas, Torre do Esporao, Assobio 2009, Porto Tawny 10 Anos, Quinta dos Murcas Reserva 2008 and others.

Barwell & Jones marketing manager Fiona Juby said they are happy to introduce Esporao portfolio to meet the consumers' needs, who are always in search for new wines from different grape varieties and countries.

"The company's strong commitment to the preservation of the environment and biodiversity will have particular resonance with the UK consumer," Juby added.

"We very much look forward to working with Esporão to grow the awareness of their portfolio in the UK, develop the distribution and drive consumer pull through via the implementation of a targeted marketing and sales strategy."
