Negociant joins Free Run Wines line-up

Free Run Wines has been appointed UK agent for SOCAV, the Bordeaux and Bergerac negociant.

The UK company’s commercial director Nicolas Bauer said: “SOCAV are able to offer an interesting range of good quality, affordable wines, including AOC Bordeaux, Médoc, Saint Emilion, Monbazillac, and Sauternes.

“They have excellent facilities, technical expertise and a great commercial team who are tuned in to the demands of international markets – exactly the sort of team we are excited about working with.”

SOCAV’s oenologists include Denis Dubourdieu, Michel Rolland and Jean-Marc Dournel. The range includes exclusive labels as well as wines from individual chateaux.

A selection of SOCAV wines will be on show at the France Under One Roof tastings at Lord’s on March 9, where Free Run Wines will also be unveiling new cuvées from Champagne Jeeper.
