Robinsons Wines are set to unveil a new partnership with Casas del Toqui at the Mercado Andino wine exhibition on the 9th and 10th of September at Spitalfields Market, London.
Moving forward with their partnerships, which now include Montelvini, the award-wining Casarena Bodegas Y Vindeos and Bodegas Forcada, Robinsons have secured a UK exclusive partnership with Casa del Toqui; Concours Mondail Bruxelles 2009 Chilean Vineyard of the Year.
Noel Reid, Wine Buyer for Robinsons Brewery said: “We have looked at our market and recognised the need to secure a long term partnership in Chile that fits our own quality led philosophy. Chile is such an important part of our portfolio with the dominance of Chilean Merlot and Sauvignon still the key to our success. The wines of Casas del Toqui have a premium feel throughout the entire range.”
Casas del Toqui, which began as a partnership between Chateau Larose from Bordeaux and the Granella family in Chile, has been owned by the Court family since 2010. The estate continues to produce award-winning wines including its 2014 Gold Medal at Concours Mondial Bruxelles for their Leyenda del Toqui.
With all wines produced from their own vines, Casa del Toqui produce a diverse range of wines offering a tiered level approach to suit differing requirements.
Paul Robinson, Wine Development Director for Robinsons Brewery, said: “They are a perfect partner for us. Our aim is to work alongside family businesses who mirror our own philosophy and ethos. Casas del Toqui are driven to produce exceptional wines that are still affordable to our estate and buyers. They will be a very welcome addition to what we feel is already an exciting range of wines.”
The range of Casas del Toqui will be available across Robinsons 300 strong pub estate and through Robinsons Free Trade sales from October.
