Rioja producer Campo Viejo has introduced screwcaps to its Viura and rosé wines to "preserve fruit flavours and freshness". "This is the latest initiative from Campo Viejo to take Rioja forward and continue to add value to the category as a whole," said Pernod Ricard wine development director Adrian Atkinson. According to
research commissioned by Pernod Ricard UK on screwcaps, consumers increasingly associate them with quality.
Louis Latour Agencies has appointed Richard Oldman to the UK sales team. Oldman will
manage accounts in the north and south west of England, the Midlands and Wales initially. He previously worked for Fuller's and Maisons Marques et Domaines.
