Enotria has bought Great Western Wines of Bath for an undisclosed sum.

Both companies are mainly focused on the on-trade but the GWW shop will be retained as part of the deal.

Enotria chief executive Alison Levett said: “Like Enotria, Great Western Wine has been founded on a passion for wine, a portfolio of fabulous family wine estates and a total commitment to service, so I am extremely confident that we will have an exciting time working together over the coming years.”

Addis said: “This is a new and exciting era for Great Western Wine, its staff and suppliers.

I’m looking forward to what will be a fabulous new challenge.”
