Former Cordoniu boss returns with United Wineries

24 June, 2014

Former Codorníu UK managing director Nick Mantella has joined United Wineries as business development director.

Mantella told OLN he has “quite a broad remit”, but will be starting out with some work in the UK.

He will be working across all United Wineries’ brands – which include Berberana, Marqués de Monistrol cava and Canaletto – but with a focus on the premium Haciendas range. 

Mantella said: “It’s going to be a very interesting job that is going to use all I have done in the past 10 years and a lot more as well, and it keeps me in Spain.”

Mantella left Codorníu in May after 12 years with the company. He took the top job in 2010, replacing Bill Breen.

Codorníu has hired head hunters to find a replacement for him.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
