Summergate Fine Wines & Spirits jointly with S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna today announced an agreement with S.Pellegrino, appointing Summergate as the sole importer and distributor of S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna waters in mainland China. The appointment is effective immediately and S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna will join Perrier and Vittel and will be available in China via Summergate in the summer of 2016. Summergate takes over the distribution of these two iconic water brands from the previous distributor, ASC Wines. 

Ambassadors of fine dining water around the world, S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna are enjoyed in the best restaurants across more than 140 countries. With a history that stretches as far back as the Renaissance period, these still and sparkling mineral waters focus on craftsmanship, quality, purity, and a devotion to gourmet food. The new partnership with Summergate, sole distributor of Perrier since 2007, will work to further build and establish these distinguished water brands as the premier choice for fine dining water in China.

“We are thrilled to take on the Italian mineral water icons S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna,” commented Ian Ford, co-founder and CEO of Summergate. “Summergate has been leading the imported water market for a decade, having established Perrier and Vittel as leading mineral waters in the region. In our fine wine business we have a broad and deep network of fantastic customers, and there is a clear synergy here with S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna. ” 

“It is our great honor to have Summergate as our partner, and we hope to perfectly interpret Italian style worldwide as a synthesis of pleasure, health and well-being in the China market through the partnership with Summergate.” commented Stefano Agostini, president and CEO at SANPELLEGRINO S.p.A.
