Focusing on the on-premise channel, the partnership will see a wide range of Wolf Blass available from Summergate for the fine wine retail sector, including fine dining restaurants and hotels across Hong Kong and Macau. Summergate will also launch the new ‘Blass’ range from winemaker, Chris Hatcher which is offered as Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay – all wildly popular varieties with wine consumers in Hong Kong and Macau.

The deal is an expansion of the existing partnership between TWE and

Summergate in Mainland China which will see both parties to consolidate their positions in Hong Kong and Macau – two key wine markets in Asia.
