Louis Latour adds New Zealand producer to portfolio

10 May, 2016

Louis Latour Agencies has bolstered its portfolio with the addition of Marlborough producer Seresin Estate.

The winery follows Champagne Gosset, Cognac Frapin and Morgenhof Estate in recently joining the company’s roster.

It is Louis Latour’s second biodynamic producer, along with alongside McHenry Hohnen of Margaret River, Australia.

Louis Latour will be supplying the UK trade with a wide range of Seresin Estate’s wines, including its Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs.

Seresin Estate also produces an organic range called MOMO, which is made using grapes from its estate and those of selected organic growers from across New Zealand’s most famous region.

These wines are said to have a more classic Marlborough style.

Will Oatley, Louis Latour’s managing director, said: “I am delighted that Seresin Estate has agreed to join us. The wines have great depth and character and are the perfect addition to our portfolio of family owned wine and spirit producers.”

Michelle Connor, Seresin Estate’s general manager, said: “Louis Latour Agencies is part of a family business that stretches back over 200 years. The values associated with this are complimentary to Seresin Estate - recognising the importance of personality and individuality of the wines and brands.

“They work with some of the best independent retailers, wholesalers, restaurants and hotels making Louis Latour Agencies an ideal partner to expand our UK distribution.”
