Concha y Toro UK is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Concha y Toro, Latin America's biggest wine company, and one of the world's leading wine producers. We were established in the UK in 2001 with a team of four, and have since grown to become the UK's third largest wine business. The team now numbers over 50 people, responsible for annual sales of over 6.7 million 9-litre cases of market-leading branded wines. These include the UK’s No1 Cabernet Sauvignon from Casillero del Diablo, No.1 Pinot Noir by Cono Sur and Trivento Reserve, the UK's No.1 selling Malbec. By applying FMCG disciplines to our industry, and by being collaborative with our customers, we seek to build long-term sustainable value growth for the wine category.
Our strategy is built around four key pillars - Distribution, Availability, Visibility and Price.
We ensure our wines are:
In the right channels
To shoppers, especially in key periods
To shoppers and consumers via eye-catching instore display
At the right time in the right place
