Hallgarten adds Gérard Bertrand to portfolio
Hallgarten Druitt, a UK-based distributor of wines, has added French producer Gerard Bertrand to its wine portfolio.
Gerard will roll out 25 of its wines, which will be showcased at Hallgarten's annual tasting events.
The first tasting event is scheduled for 11 February 2013 at Dorchester in London and second on 13 February 2013 at Aspire in Leeds.
Gerard Bertrand owner and winemaker Gerard Bertrand told Harpers that they share similar profile of delivering premium wine to consumers and Hallgarten also provides them exposure to the independent and on-trade channels.
Hallgarten Druitt managing director Andrew Bewes was quoted by the website as saying that there is a huge demand for stronger French brands in the UK and believes Gerard Bertrand will fill that gap.
"His personal determination and dedication to win - previously evident on the rugby pitch - will, we feel, be a determining factor in driving success here in the UK," Bewes added.
The Hallgarten annual tasting event will also include wineries under Hallgarten's portfolio such as Saint Clair of New Zealand, Hamilton Russell of South Africa, Marchesi de' Frescobaldi of Tuscany, Michele Chiarlo of Piedmont, Peter Lehmann of Australia, Moutard of Champagne, Schloss Johannisberg of Germany, Dona Paula of Argentina and Carmen of Chile.
