EMW | East Meets West Fine Wines Signs A New Distribution Partnership in Mainland China with Roda and Corimbo

 

EMW Fine Wines (EMW) is delighted to announce a new partnership with Bodegas Roda and Corimbo in Mainland China.

The premium quality producer Bodegas Roda in Rioja Alta, Spain, has expanded its partnership with EMW to include exclusive distribution in Mainland China. In addition, their sister company, Corimbo, Ribera del Duero, Spain, has appointed EMW for exclusive representation in the same territory. Following their cooperation in Hong Kong and Macau, EMW and Bodegas Roda agreed to rationalize their business together in Mainland China.

 

About Roda

logo

 

 

Founded in 1987 by Mario Rottlant and Carmen Daurella, Bodegas Roda represents today one of the most prestigious wineries in the Rioja appellation. Located in Haro, La Rioja, the winery was established with the firm intention of bringing something new in the world of winemaking.

 

Roda wines are the expression of the local grape varieties: Graciano, Garnacha and particularly Tempranillo with more than 550 clones selected by the technical team of the winery. The grapes come from old bush vines, trained in 17 different landscapes, manually harvested and fermented into 17 different French oak vats. The result is an impressive and elegant range of Rioja DOCa that ever since the winery foundation have been regarded as new icons in the wine panorama.

 

About Corimbo

logo 2

Bodegas RODA, after a trajectory of more than 20 years that have made it one of the most prestigious wineries in the Rioja appellation, started an investigation throughout Spain in search of the best lands for the cultivation of Tempranillo outside of Rioja. The outcome of this investigation was the beginning of the Corimbo project, in the Ribera del Duero area, in La Horra. While the terroir of this new estate is significantly different, the philosophy remains unchanged and excellence is pursued as painstakingly as at Roda. Old vineyards, sustainability, manual harvest, reflection of the terroir and of the vintage are the key words that led Corimbo to its great success among wine lovers throughout the world.

EMW Fine Wines (EMW) is proud to announce a new strategic partnership with Pelissero  for the areas of Hong Kong and Macau

The importer-distributor East Meets West Fine Wines (EMW) strengthens its Italian portfolio with an exclusive partnership in Hong Kong and Macau with Pelissero Az. Agr. Vitivincola (Pelissero) the prestigious family estate from the heart of Barbaresco, Piedmont.  EMW and Pelissero have a long history together in Mainland China and, commencing April 1st, 2020, are now excited to extend our collaboration to Hong Kong and Macau.

 

About Pelissero

PL-1

 

 

The Pelissero Family has always been dedicated to agriculture with a strong connection to the Langhe territory in Piedmont.

Our agricultural DNA has always been firmly rooted in the timeless traditions of the Langhe farmer. We are located in Treiso, an independent municipality since 1957, in the heart of the Barbaresco region and one of the first Italian DOCGs. Barbaresco is inseparable from the Nebbiolo variety that, more than any other, defines the history of our hills.  Nebbiolo is known as the ‘king’ of the grape varieties.  We are children of this land and these vines.

 

PL-2

The family’s spirit of continuous improvement, in the vineyard and the cellar, coupled with our passion, commitment and innovation always remain constant.  This spirit joined today by our pride in being third-generation vine growers. But our philosophy has not changed since 1957: we primarily cultivate native varieties, in particular Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto, which make up 85 percent of our production. All the grapes we use come from our 42 hectare estate that we own and manage. In concert with the best local consultants, we follow the entire production cycle, from pruning the vines to marketing the 250,000 bottles that we make each year.
