04 November, 2014

Wright: delighted by partnership

Online retailer Virgin Wines has teamed up with the UK’s leading supplier Accolade Wines to launch an exclusive range of Hardys wines.

The Chronicles range will include a Shiraz, a Chardonnay and three blends known as Hardys Chronicle No.1, No.2 and No.3.

The wines are “filled with the amazing stories of founder, Thomas Hardy, and his historic journey into the wine world”.

They will be exclusive to Virgin customers.

The retailer’s chief executive Jay Wright said: “We’re confident that by combining their experience with our passion, we can create a range of wines our customers will absolutely love.

“It was important for us to partner with someone who shared our key values and we know we’ve found that with Hardys. We’re very excited for our customers to be able to experience an exclusive range of wines that you simply can’t find anywhere else.”

Hardys brand ambassador and 5th generation family member Bill Hardy added: “We’re excited to be teaming up with Virgin Wines, a company that shares our very same entrepreneurial values and passion for wine. Hardys The Chronicles is a special range, inspired by my great, great grandfather’s experiences before he founded the Hardys wine company.”
