Barossa Valley Estate (BVE) has entered into multiple distribution arrangements to expand the sales of its brands internationally.

In China, BVE has signed a distribution deal with BCW International Trading (BCW), an Australian arm of Archibald Wine, to expand the sales of its Ebenezer and E & E Black Pepper Shiraz brands, reported

The signing of the Chinese agreement comes on the backdrop of BVE’s grower shareholder buying back Accolade Wine’s 50% stake and becoming 100% owner.

BVE chief executive Christine Hahn told the website they are pleased to be embarking on the next phase of the company’s growth with the team at BCW.

"We have been working with BCW for the last 12 months and felt the time was right to enter into a longer term agreement to seize the opportunities offered by the rapidly growing Chinese wine market," Hahn added.

"In the last twelve months we have changed our shareholders, Board of Directors, world-wide distributors and bottling company, so I look forward to working with the BVE team in capitalising on the many opportunities available for Barossa Valley Estate."

In Australia, BVE has selected Deja vu Wine for distribution in the eastern states, whereas in South Australia and West Australia, Options Wine Merchants and Fine Wine Wholesalers will handle the distribution tasks respectively.

BVE has retained its distributors Vincor Canada and Constellation New Zealand, subsidiaries of Constellation Brands, to distribute in Canada and New Zealand respectively.

By withdrawing its links with Accolade Wines, BVE has started exporting its products directly to international markets.
