Black Tower, the top-selling German wine in the UK, is growing its volumes by around 20% a year and has beaten its target of selling more than a million 9-litre cases in a year. A single-serve can of sparkling Black Tower Fizz was launched at this year's London Wine Fair, as was Kendermanns' Special Edition Pinot Noir. Reh Kendermann carried out its biggest London and regional sampling programme this summer, and plans more brand support in the run-up to Christmas.
