We’re pleased to announce that we have been appointed as distributor of the acclaimed Domaine Jones winery, on the Languedoc-Roussillon border, in the South of France, focussing on the independent and on-trade sectors.
Katie Jones, owner and winemaker at Domaine Jones commented “Since starting Domaine Jones with my husband Jean-Marc in 2009, the UK has been our largest market,” says Katie. “Until now I have been handling sales myself, but as demand grows, I have realised that I could do with some help. We have many loyal friends and followers in the UK, and I am delighted that the dedicated team at GBUK will work with us to move to the next level and reach even more consumers. Being family owned and with a manageable portfolio of great estates, we believe Gonzalez Byass is a good fit for us, and trust the team to be our ambassadors in the UK. I look forward to having a bit more time to visit customers over the coming months.”
Martin Skelton, our Managing Director says “both Katie and her wines are packed full of personality, warmth and charm, and represent the very best of what can be produced in the Languedoc. Domaine Jones is a fantastic addition to our portfolio and will enhance our range of top quality wine estates.”
Following Domaine Jones’ maiden vintage in 2009, Katie has earned an excellent reputation for her award-winning Fitou and her passion to acquire ancient vineyards and vinify tiny parcels of often lesser-known varietals such as Macabeu and Carignan Gris. All the Domaine Jones wines are produced exclusively from hand-picked grapes grown on 12 hectares of old vines on the steep mountain slopes, resulting in low yields and extraordinary quality.
The wines will be available via Gonzalez Byass UK from July 2018. For more information please speak to your Account Manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
