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 second-largest wine business. The team now numbers over 50 people, responsible for annual sales of over 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 and best-selling red wine sku. 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
