MMD to represent Podernuovo a Palazzone wines in US
Maisons Marques & Domaines USA (MMD), a California-based marketer and importer of wines from family-owned wineries, has partnered with a Tuscan estate - Podernuovo a Palazzone - to represent its wines in the US.
Effective immediately, MMD will represent Podernuovo's core Italian wines - Therra and Sotirio - in the US.
Located in Tuscany near San Casciano dei Bagni, the 20ha Podernuovo a Palazzone estate is planted with Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines, and also incorporates geothermal energy, a photovoltaic system and non-invasive architecture.
Podernuovo a Palazzone co-founder Giovanni Bulgari said they are happy to partner with MMD and the Rouzaud family.
"We both bring a strong commitment to excellence and an appreciation for quality and beauty while sharing the philosophy that excellence starts in the vineyard and with the terroir," Bulgari added.
MMD president Gregory Balogh said, "Podernuovo a Palazzone produces outstanding wines and is a natural complement to the rest of our portfolio of champagne and fine wines."
Podernuovo joins MMD's portfolio of other properties such as Roederer Estate, Scharffenberger Cellars, Ramos-Pinto, Delas Freres, Domaines Ott, Chateau Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, Chateau de Pez and Chateau Haut-Beausejour.
