“Now, with all the changes happening in the wine business, it seemed the right time to move to someone like Liberty Wines who could extend our distribution through into different channels.”

David Gleave MW, managing director of Liberty Wines, says: “We are delighted to add El Coto de Rioja to our portfolio as the wines both complement and greatly strengthen our existing offering from Rioja.

“The breadth and depth of their vineyards is one of the most exciting things about El Coto, as it ensures consistency of supply and quality to our customers.  We look forward to building upon the work done by Cockburn & Campbell.”
