Cantina di Soave becomes exclusive distributor of Constellation Brands in Italy

In a statement issued this week, behemoth cooperative Cantina di Soave has signed an agreement with Constellation Brands making it the exclusive distributor of the U.S.-based distributor’s “new world products of excellence” in Italy — including brands Flagstone and Kumala (South Africa), Kim Crawford and Nobilo (New Zealand), Hardys (Australia), and Mondavi (California).

“This agreement,” said Bruno Trentini, CEO, “brings prestige to our company, from the moment that we have been selected by Constellation Brands as their exclusive partner in Italy.” It will “allow the Cantina di Soave to conquer another band of the Italian market — the sale of New World wines — without eroding the current sales numbers for the company’s core business, Soave, Valpolicella, and Amarone.”

The Cantina di Soave cooperative includes “2,200 producer members, owners of 6,000 hecatres planted to vine,” with “an average yearly production of 30 million bottles and gross profit that exceeds 70 million Euro.”
