Fetzer Portfolio Boosts Concha y Toro In First HalfAugust 29, 2016
Viña Concha y Toro is toasting a strong first-half performance for its Fetzer subsidiary, whose U.S. business grew by 9% during the period, including solid performances by the Bonterra (+3%), Little Black Dress (+3%), Anthony’s Hill (+14%) and Pacific Bay (+15) labels, as well as newcomer 1000 Stories. Concha y Toro’s namesake brand, marketed by Excelsior Wines—the Chile-based company’s U.S. joint venture with Banfi—was roughly flat in Nielsen channels during the first half. Excelsior and the Fetzer Vineyards Co. combined for around 4.6 million cases in the U.S. last year, according to Impact Databank. Viña Concha y Toro is the world’s ninth-largest wine marketer at 34 million cases. —Daniel MarstellerSubscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
