Speri wines to be imported into Greater China exclusively by Summergate

25th Sep. 2015  /  Summergate News  ·  Speri Wines

Summergate Fine Wines & Spirits today announced an agreement with Speri Viticoltori appointing Summergate as the sole importer and distributor of Speri wines in Greater China. The appointment is effective immediately, and Speri wines are already available via Summergate in Hong Kong and will be available in Mainland China this fall.

One of the historical families in Valpolicella, Speri is an important and faithful exponent of the wines of the Valpolicella Classico zone and have also become, thanks to the firm’s consistency and its intimate links with its area of origin, an authoritative point of reference within the Italian wine scene. Italian wines are now the 5th most imported wines in Mainland China, representing 6.4% of the total imported wine market and growing 16% in the last quarter alone (Source: China Customs Import Statistics). Summergate can’t wait to share the Speri wines and family legacy with Greater China.

“We’re thrilled to reach this agreement to import and distribute the exceptional Speri Wines into Great China” declared Ian Ford, Founder and CEO of Summergate. “With over 100 years of experience, Speri stands apart from the competition as a genuine connoisseur’s Valpolicella, over-delivering on quality and rewarding wine lovers with a true and fine expression of what the region is famous for,” said Ford.

“At Speri we are all very excited about this new cooperation,” said Luca Speri, Co-owner of Speri Viticoltori. “We have a great trust in Summergate and admire the wines that they represent through their diverse portfolio, traversing varied wine regions and cultures. I am very happy to start this long-term relationship with one of the undisputed iconic importers in Asia.”
