Trinchero Family Estates has increased its luxury import portfolio by partnering with the Spanish producers Finca Allende, Finca Nueva, Quinta Sardonia and Terras Gauda.
TFE will serve as their exclusive import, distribution and marketing representative in the U.S.
All four Spanish estates are owned by two families: the Fonseca family, who are proprietors of Quinta Sardonia and Terras Gauda, and the de Gregorio family, who own and lead winemaking at Finca Allende and Finca Nueva. Each estate is based in acclaimed appellations, the company says: Finca Allende and Nueva in Rioja Alta, Terras Gauda in Rias Biaxas, and Quinta Sardonia, which was founded by the famed Peter Sisseck in Castilla y Leon, just outside of Ribera del Duero.
The wines will distribute to retailers and restaurants beginning in March, and include indigenous varieties with an emphasis on hand-harvested, estate-grown grapes from old vines.
Sales for the thirteen wines will receive support from TFE’s Heritage Division – a luxury-focused sales group created in 2016. TFE has also recently hired European import sales director, Nicole Andrus, based in Barcelona, to help lead their European expansion.
Trinchero Family Estates adds the Spanish partners to a stable of import brands that includes Angove Family Winemakers of Australia, Doña Paula of Argentina, Carmen of Chile, Avissi Prosecco of Italy, and Echo Bay of New Zealand.
