Charles Heidsieck Moving To Folio Fine Wine PartnersMay 1, 2015
Like stablemate Piper-Heidsieck, Charles Heidsieck is moving from Rémy Cointreau USA to a new importer. Folio Fine Wine Partners is adding Charles Heidsieck Champagne to its growing import portfolio, effective June 1.
While it routinely sold more than 10,000 cases in the U.S. before the economic downturn took effect in 2008, Charles Heidsieck has struggled since then. Over the past few years, the Champagne brand has sold around 4,000 cases annually in the U.S., although that figure fell to 3,000 in 2014, according to Impact Databank.
“As we look to expand our reach, we’ll continue to seek family-owned producers that round out our portfolio, fit our culture, and most importantly, make extraordinary wines,” said Michael Mondavi, who founded Folio with his wife and children a decade ago.
