Expanding the portfolio: new products for 2020

The Bibendum family is always growing, and it's not just new producers that are joining the fold this year. Some of our producers have been hard at work in their vineyards and wineries, creating fantastic new products that we can't wait to share with you.

From sustainably-packaged drinks, to unique indigenous varieties, to wines that fit the 'mindful winemaking' mould - there's something for everyone here. Read on to find out more...

Wine in Can: Small But Perfectly Formed

With 87% of consumers concerned about the impact that packaging has on the environment, wine in a can is a natural addition to our portfolio. The 'Small But Perfectly Formed' range comprises a quality Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rosé, in eye-catching and 100% recyclable packaging. 

France

We've expanded our French portfolio to ensure our range continues to hit the mark for our customers. From small and large formats, to alternative styles, to an increased Bordeaux range in line with our 2020 focus on the region - our French offering has never been better.

Italy 

'Naturalmente' by Caruso e Minini

The Naturalmente range is entirely organic, sourced from an isolated collection of certified vineyards in Trapani, Sicily. Crafted from indigenous varieties, even the eye-catching Naturalmente labels are created from biodegradable sugarcane paper, in true sustainable fashion. 

Slovenia & Macedonia

Puklavec Family Wines

With UK consumer interest in the indigenous varieties of Central Europe growing, these new wines from Puklavec tick all the boxes. This new premium range is rich in aromatics and characteristic smoky notes, with inspiring, attractive labels. Puklavec are committed to embodying the best of their region in their wines, and these new additions are no exception. 

South Africa 

Seaward by Spier 

Created exclusively for the on-trade, the Seaward wines make up the new vegan range from ethical winemaking giant Spier. Grapes are selected from South Africa's top coastal regions, where they are grown in a narrow band close to the cold Atlantic Ocean and the temperate waters of False Bay. Such terroir provides what you might call a 'perfect storm' for winemaking, with barely any human intervention needed to create outstanding wines.

Journey's End 

Famed Stellenbosch producer Journey's End are adding their first rosé to a much-acclaimed portfolio. Sure to be a spring and summer favourite, they describe this as having 'succulent strawberry and raspberry flavours, coupled with a crispness on the finish'. 

Chile 

Garage Wine Co.

Garage have expanded their innovative range with a Semillon. Created from a parcel previously viewed as too small for modern winemaking, grapes here are farmed 'ancestrally, by hand and horse', before being fermented in amphora.

USA

Charles Smith Wines

The latest offering from rock-band-manager-turned-winemaker Charles Smith is the first rosé in his range. The Band of Roses Pinot Gris Blush is pure, vibrant and perfumed, with flavours of lilac, guava and passion fruit.

New Zealand

'Crazy by Nature' by Millton Vineyards

Biodynamic royalty James and Annie Millton have launched the 'Crazy by Nature' range; approachable wines that open up their winemaking to a wider spectrum of customers. Both the Cosmo Red and the Sirius White are fruit-forward and expressive, and adhere to Millton Vineyards' practices of organic, biodynamics, hand harvesting and natural fermentation. 

Huia 

The latest addition to the Huia range is a Gruner Veltliner, an unusual variety to find in New Zealand. A single vineyard wine, hand-harvested and certified organic, the Huia Gruner Veltliner is elegant and dry, with flavours of jasmine, honeysuckle, peach, and ripe lemon.
