Bancroft buys organic wine importer Mason & Mason

Bancroft Wines has bought the specialist organic wine importer Mason & Mason Wines.

Chichester-based Mason & Mason was founded in 2002 by husband and wife team Nick and Laura Mason. 

It specialises in “farm, not factory” organic wines which it supplies to the on-trade, independent off-trade and national retailers.

Nick Mason has over 30 years’ experience in the wine trade, including a spell as a buyer for Harrods and time in sales with Ehrmanns, Bibendum and Richards Walford.

He said: “We believe both portfolios complement each other beautifully, echoing our shared philosophy on excellence of product and customer service.

“Represented together, they will take our combined businesses to the next level.”

Bancroft managing director Neil McAndrew said the move reflects “the commitment of both the chairman and the board to long-term investment and growth within this fast-moving market.”
