Wine de Vine becomes Official Countrywide Distributor of Moët Hennessy Liquors
Wednesday, March 28th, 2012
Wine lovers will be happy to learn that Wine de Vine has become the new Official Partner and Distributor of Moët Hennessy Wines and Spirits in Belize. The partnership comes after Wine de Vine took the initiative to pursue the distributorship when they learned that their previous supplier would no longer be carrying the products. Wine de Vine says that because there was no official distributor for the country before, wholesalers had to buy through unofficial channels, which ended up pushing up the cost of the products and made availability unpredictable.
What this new partnership means for the country is that Wine de Vine will now be able to offer direct access to the wide range of Moët Hennessy products and will allow for much more reliable availability, as well as cheaper costs at both the wholesale and retail level. Mrs. Flor Bradley, manager of Wine de Vine, says that this is an exciting time for the company as it opens the doors to a large selection of popular and coveted products that are instantly recognized as top liquors worldwide. The Moët Hennessy portfolio includes renowned brands such as Moët et Chandon, Krug, Ruinart, Dom Pérignon, Veuve Clicquot, Ardberg, Mercier, Château d’Yquem, Hennessy, Glenmorangie, Belvedere, Domaine Chandon California, Domaine Chandon Australia, 10 Cane, Bodegas Chandon, Cloudy Bay, Cape Mentelle Vineyard, Newton Vineyard, Lapostolle Terrazas de los Andes, Cheval des Andes, Château de Sancerre, Château Cheval Blanc, Grand Marnier,Wenjun and Numanthia.
Although not all of the products on the Moët Hennessy portfolio are available at this time, Mrs. Bradley says that they are already working on the second phase of their partnership to increase the number of brands they now carry and have every intention to make as many of the products available for the Belizean market and consumers as quickly as possible. Wine de Vine currently carries several sparkling wines and red wines with plans to increase to the full range of Moët Hennessy Liquors.
When asked about the new partnership Mrs. Bradley said, “We are very proud to be able to do this because it is a huge accomplishment for us to be able to provide these products for retail and wholesale and to also continue to be able to provide these products for the tourist industry and anyone else who enjoys Champagne. For us to be able to do that and to do it at a price level that everybody will be comfortable with is great. It is very exciting; for us it’s a huge, huge accomplishment.”
At the moment Wine de Vine currently carries the following selections:
- Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin
- Moët et Chandon Imperial
- Maison Ruinart Blanc de Blancs & Rosé
- Dom Pérignon Blanc & Rosé
- Terrazas de los Andes Reserve Malbec
