Chilean wine giant Concha y Toro had a year to remember for all the right reasons in 2016, with volume sales up 7.2% to 16.3 million cases.

Despite tough market conditions last year due to exchange rate devaluations, in line with the company’s strategic focus, the premium category was the most dynamic, growing 8.6%, with 6.1 million cases sold. The region with the highest expansion was Asia, where sales volumes increased by 23%, reflected by solid growth in China (+90%), Japan (+12%) and Korea (+18%).

CYT has also been successful in building its brands, notably Casillero del Diablo – one of the world’s most powerful wine brands, which grew by 8.6% to 5.4 million cases, with the UK remaining the largest global market for the brand. Over two million cases of Casillero were sold in Britain last year helped by the company’s Wine Legend advertising campaign and recently renewed collaboration with Manchester United football club.

The Marques de Casa Concha label meanwhile, has become one of Chile’s most well respected premium brands with a particular focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, with global sales growing by 5.2%, while top drop Don Melchor enjoyed a 17% rise in sales last year.

With 9,400 hectares under vine, Concha y Toro’s wines are on sale in 140 countries. “The long term commitment to quality wines has been championed by the Guilisasti family since the 1960s. Today the company is known for its modern approach, but always puts its passion for wine, and the realisation of Chile’s potential to produce world class wines, first,” said Ben Smith, Concha y Toro UK’s head of communications.

    I just wished they stocked more products, especially the 187ml bottles, in the UK. I prefer the white Moscato and always have a nightmare trying to find it in the UK.
