In 2012 flagship Casillero del Diablo grew by 8% to hit global sales of 3.4 million cases, boosted by a strategic partnership with Manchester United.
Growth has been even stronger in the super-premium category, with a volume increase of 21%, driven by Marques de Casa Concha and the introduction of Gran Reserva Serie Riberas in the US.
