The giant Distell in South Africa is investing in premium wines

Distell is South Africa’s largest wine producer. With brands such as Alto, Nederburg, Durbanville Hills, Plaisir de Merle, Pongrácz, Fleur du Cap, Allesverloren, Zonnebloem, Two Oceans, Drostdy-Hof and others, the company accounts for a not insignificant part of the entire South African wine production.

Now all the premium wines of Distell will be managed separately. Recently, Distell launched a new company, Libertas Vineyards and Estates and this company will take care of premium brands such as Nederburg, Durbanville Hills, Plaisir de Merle, Pongrácz and Allesverloren.

The aim is to develop the market for premium wines and also to give more thorough attention to these wines, which represent an important part of Distell’s portfolio. The flagship Nederburg has had great success in recent years and in 2017 it was nominated Winery of the Year by the respected South African wine guide Platter’s.
