Based in the Denominación Origen of Terra Alta, in the southeastern corner of Catalonia, Herencia Altés specialises in creating wines from old vines – particularly Garnacha Negra and Blanca – grown around the village of Batea.

The appointment of Matthew Clark as exclusive UK distributor follows 12 months of significant investment for the brand, with the purchase of an additional 11 hectares of old vines, the construction of a state-of-the-art winery, and the appointment of a first-class winemaking team.

Rafael De Haan, Herencia Altés co-owner, said: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Matthew Clark as our exclusive agent in the UK. Their commitment to a quality-led portfolio with a strong focus on Spain, combined with their unparalleled national reach convinced us that our brand would be well looked-after in their hands.”

Simon Jerrome, purchasing director for Matthew Clark said: “We are very proud of our Spanish portfolio, which we have developed extensively in recent years. Herencia Altés provides us with excellent quality wines from a relatively unknown region – just one of the undiscovered gems which will be unveiled at our London tasting next month.”

The full range of Herencia Altés wines will be available to taste exclusively at Matthew Clark’s Discover the Unexpected tasting taking place on 18th March 2014 at Tobacco Dock.
