EMW Fine Wines Hong Kong Office Announces Partnership with Craggy Range

Craggy Range Logo

 

EMW Fine Wines is delighted to announce the distribution agreement with Craggy Range for Hong Kong and Macau markets.
 

This extension is made based on the long term cooperation between EMW and Craggy Range since the Exclusive Distribution Agreement signed for Mainland China in all channels three years ago. We believe this move will strength the power of Craggy Range winery and help us to provide better service to our clients in Greater China region.

 

Gregory Bielot – Managing Partner of EMW Fine Wines

“Craggy Range is a very good winery that has just been named in the 31st annual Wine & Spirits magazine best 100 wineries 2017 from around the world. With the full range of excellent Craggy Range wines, we will enrich our Hong Kong product portfolio; expand Craggy Range distribution channels to a new level combined with Mainland China.”

 

General Manager of Craggy Range, Aaron Drummond believes the move will streamline the distribution for the brand.

“We are proud to announce East Meets West (EMW) will be distributing Craggy Range wines in Hong Kong and Macau, in addition to China which they already manage. This decision hasn’t been taken lightly. It made business sense to consolidate to one distributor for our China, Hong Kong and Macau business.”

 

EMW Fine Wines specializes in leading family owned wineries from the most prominent wine regions worldwide. With the head office Shanghai founded in 2003, EMW is now exclusively distributing more than 500 labels from 12 different countries to more than 150 major cities covering international hotels, top restaurants, boutique wine shops, retail chains and private clienteles all over Greater China.

 

Craggy Range is a family owned winery, established by Terry and Mary Peabody in 1998 with the desire to create a legacy of wines that would become internationally regarded as New World classics. And today Craggy Range is without a doubt one of the most prestigious wineries from New Zealand with the crown of ‘New World Winery of the Year 2014’ by the Wine Enthusiast.

Zenato:

The Soul of Lugana and the Heart of Valpolicella

www.zenato.it/en/

It all began in 1960 when Sergio Zenato, filled with energy and ambition experimented with new techniques of wine making and invested in native vines in order to obtain wine of the highest quality out of his vineyards in Lugana and Valpolicella. Today, the family’s winemaking tradition continues to pursue Sergio’s great enterprise with the same enthusiasm, making the excellence of Zenato's wines known in more than 60 countries of the world.
Zenato's Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta vineyards are located in the heart of Valpolicella Classica, in Sant'Ambrogio. This is where Amarone Zenato is made. Which today is considered one of the most valuable Valpolicella wines on the international stage and one of the most important Italian red wines.

Sergio Zenato was the first to re-discover an ancient method of Valpolicella by then long neglected: the "Ripassa", made by “repassing” Valpolicella wine over the pressed grapes of Amarone.
