Lyme Bay Winery joins Enotria&Coe's wine portfolio

Published 05 December 2016

Devon-based winery Lyme Bay has partnered with UK wine and spirits distributor Enotria&Coe.

The partnership will see three of Lyme Bay's still wines, its white blend Shoreline, Bacchus and Pinot Noir Rose, and its 2013 sparkler, Brut Reserve, added to Enotria&Coe’s portfolio.

Enotria&Coe wine buyer Maggie Macpherson said: "Provenance is becoming increasingly important to UK consumers, and over the past few years we have seen this reflected in the growing demand for premium quality English wines.

“The purity of fruit and quintessentially English flavours of Lyme Bay's wines shone through in our tasting sessions, and we’re delighted to be working with Lyme Bay Winery to bring its award-winning English wines to our On and Off Trade customers."

Lyme Bay Winery’s Shoreline, Bacchus and Pinot Noir Rosé have recently won seven awards from International Wine & Spirits Challenge, the UKVA Wine of the Year Competition and the Decanter World Wine Awards.

Lyme Bay Winery is now being regarded as one of the most critically acclaimed English wineries in its second vintage.

Lyme Bay Winery managing director James Lambert said: "We're delighted to partner with Enotrie&Coe to distribute four of our award-winning English wines.

“Enotria&Coe have a fantastic reputation for supplying premium quality wines to the On and Off Trade, and this partnership demonstrates the growing appetite for English wines across the UK.

“We have some fantastic distribution partnerships set up in key regional areas of the country, and working with Enotria&Coe will enable us to reach customers in regions that were previously inaccessible."

According to The Drinks Business, Lyme Bay first launched its wines range in 2014 and has been built an independent off-trade for its fruit wines, liqueurs and ciders. Now, it plans to increase production in the years to come.
