Klein Constantia Estate consolidates South African Distribution

Posted on 03 Jun 2015

Klein Constantia Estate and Anwilka Vineyards will be represented by Meridian Wine Merchants on a national basis from 1 August 2015.

Having been part of the Meridian Wine Merchants distribution service in select markets for many years, the two parties have now decided to extend their involvement further.

“This is part of the revitalisation of our brand. We are working hard on being one of the leading South African wineries and in so doing, we also need to be with the leaders for distribution. This will strengthen our presence and service to our customers, whilst we as wine producers can focus on what we do best, making world class wines.” says Hans Astrom, Managing Director of Klein Constantia. “We thank our partners that have worked with us for many years, without whom we would not be where we are today.  This step is a natural evolution for us considering the direction that distribution has taken over the last decade in a very competitive environment.”

Meridian Managing Director, Gavin Dittmar says, “Meridian Wine Merchants strives to have the best portfolio of wines in South Africa. Our focus is on representing quality brands across the price spectrum, with a particular focus on premium wines. Klein Constantia has a rich heritage and history and the future looks even better. Having represented Klein Constantia in parts of South Africa for 14 years now, this is a natural extension of their distribution for us. We are excited when we see where the brand is going, supported by the current investment into their properties and their wines. We welcome Klein Constantia to our portfolio and look forward to many successful years together.”
