PLB takes on Hungarian wines

10 December, 2010

PLB has been appointed the UK agent for Hungarian winery Danubiana.

The Sussex-based wine importer will look after Danubiana’s on and off-trade distribution, representing a number of branded and exclusive labels including the Jon Josh range.

Buyer Joanna Cugley said: “Danubiana is able to offer affordable quality wines focused not only at entry level but also at the mid-range. It has the ability to produce wines showing distinct regionality from some fantastic lesser-known indigenous varieties as well as international styles.

“Danubiana is part of the new age of eastern European winemaking, with state-of-the art facilities and technical expertise, and a great commercial team very in tune with its key markets.”?Danubiana is a sister company of German winery Binderer St Ursula, and is the biggest exporter of Hungarian wines. It has production sites at Bonyhád and Gyöngyös, with an annual production of approximately 15 million bottles of white, rosé and red wines.
