The UK wine agency, which is under the ownership of the Coe family, former owners of Coe Vintners, will distribute the wines produced by Marques de Riscal, which was established in 1858.
“We are incredibly excited to represent such a prestigious, family-owned brand,” said John and Ashley Coe, Barwell & Jones. “Marques de Riscal’s philosophy of respect for the past whilst looking to the future, resonates with our own and we look forward to bringing these fantastic wines to a wider audience.”
Joe Luis Muguiro from Marques de Riscal, said: “We look forward to working with Barwell & Jones and entrusting our brand into the hands of another family-owned agent. This gives us a new focus in the UK and an opportunity to work with another family-led business.”
Marques de Riscal is also home to The City of Wine, designed by world renowned architect Frank Gehry.
