Christensen takes helm at Enotria

24 April, 2014

Enotria has appointed former Constellation and Accolade Wines boss Troy Christensen as its chief executive.

Christensen is to take over from Alison Levett, who is leaving the business after seven years.

He is moving to the UK from the US to take on the role.

An Enotria spokesman said: “Troy will continue to build on Enotria’s success, ensuring that its producers and customers across all channels continue to enjoy the benefits of dealing with one of the leading wine distributors in the UK.”

During Levett’s time with Enotria, annual revenue has grown to more than £120 million from £52 million.

She said: “There is never a good time to leave a business like Enotria, however it’s now appropriate to hand over the leadership baton. Enotria has gone from strength to strength and I’m pleased to have been part of such a successful business, made all the more special by the wonderful team of people.”

Talking terroir

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
