Link up for Qualia and Clink

02 February, 2010

Australian wine producer Qualia Wines has joined forces with London-based importer Clink Wines.

Quila Wines is owned by a consortium of vignerons and business leaders who bought the assets of Neqtar Wines in December after the company's collapse. Its portfolio includes a number of own-label ranges, along with brands Commissioner’s Block, Mid-Day, Calder Grove, Burke’s Rest and Little Eden.

The partnership enables Clink Wines to “grow its branded portfolio in international markets” and will see the launch of two new brands, according to managing director Catherine Monahan.

“It provides us with exciting new opportunities to strengthen innovation and quality within a category that still has much to offer, but desperately needs a new injection of energy,” she said.

John Pezzaniti, Qualia Wines’ executive director, added: “As privately-owned businesses, our synergies are strong and we know that we will develop a strong, meaningful portfolio in the UK – one that is flexible, focused and innovative.

"Furthermore, Clink Wine’s focus on partnerships with global producers that help encourage sustainable grower relationships and their communities is something that is vitally important to us.”
