Delicato Adds To Import Stable, Taking On Schmitt SöhneNovember 27, 2018
California’s Delicato Family Vineyards is expanding its imported wine portfolio, adding Germany’s Schmitt Söhne to its range effective in January. Schmitt Söhne, which previously handled its own U.S. importing, is known for Riesling and includes its namesake flagship brand, as well as Relax Wines, Fünf Wines, and the Thomas Schmitt Private Collection. Delicato will also import luxury estate wines Bischöfliche Weinguter Trier, Schloss Vollrads, Friedrich-Wilhelm-Gymnasium, and Franz Keller, which are distributed but not owned by Schmitt Söhne. Overall, the Schmitt Söhne range totals about 700,000 cases in the U.S. Delicato’s import lineup also includes Chile’s Santa Rita, which joined the portfolio in April.—Daniel MarstellerSubscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
