English fizz attracts new deal

2nd July, 2015 by Gabriel Stone

English sparkling wine producer Jenkyn Place has stepped up its ambitions by signing a UK distribution deal with New Generation Wines.

Jenkyn PlaceBased in Hampshire, the producer currently makes a brut cuvée, sparkling rosé and the recently added blanc de noirs  from its 12 acres of vineyard, which were planted between 2004 and 2010.

Although Jenkyn Place has already secured listings in a number of on- and off-trade outlets around the UK, this latest move is designed to extend the brand’s presence at a time when English wine is seem dramatic increases in production. Jenkyn Place will continue to handle existing accounts close to its vineyard.

Jenkyn Place’s marketing manager Camilla Bladon highlighted the strong fit between the producer and New Generation Wines, whose portfolio includes Inglenook in Napa Valley, Boekenhoutskloof in Franschhoek, Churchill’s in the Douro, Pegasus Bay in Waipara and pioneering Chilean wine Seña.

“They specialise in wines from family owned vineyards, which is a perfect fit for Jenkyn Place, and we hope that this new relationship will allow even more people to taste our English sparkling wines,” she commented.

James Booth, managing director of New Generation Wines, added: “We are so excited to start working with Simon Bladon, his daughter Camilla and their delicious, top quality range. We have been keeping a close eye on the effervescent world of fine English sparkling wine and as soon as we met Simon and Camilla, visited Jenkyn Place and tasted the wines, we knew we had found the perfect partners.”
