Parker Coonawarra Estate wines
to be imported into Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Macau) exclusively by Summergate

Summergate Fine Wines & Spirits today announced an agreement with Parker Coonawarra Estate appointing Summergate as the sole importer and distributor of Parker Coonawarra Estate in Greater China. The appointment is effective immediately, and Parker Coonawarra Estate wines are expected to be available via Summergate in for the summer 2016. 

In the mid 1980’s John Parker identified the best locations on Coonawarra’s Terra Rossa strip, which resulted in the purchase of land just north of Penola. The vineyard was planted with Reynella Selection Cabernet Sauvignon – original cuttings on non-resistant rootstock, sourced from Bordeaux in the early 1800’s before phylloxera decimated France.

For thirty years, Parker Coonawarra Estate has achieved numerous wine show medals, trophies and accolades, including a Five Red Star rating by James Halliday, Langton’s Classification V for Excellence, and countless high rating reviews by major wine media both within Australia and internationally.

“Summergate is proudly Australian-owned now, and what better way to reflect that then the introduction of one of the great Cabernet winemakers of Australia and the World, Parker Coonawarra Estate” commented Ian Ford, Chief Executive of the Summergate Group. “Parker joins an outstanding portfolio of premium Australian producers with Summergate, and we’re all very excited to be able to offer these iconic wines to our entire family of fine wine clients across China” said Ford. 

“Parker Coonawarra Estate is very proud to partner with Summergate Fine Wines, with whom we share an understanding of world-class wine quality, premium wine distribution and what it takes to bring the finest wines to the complex China, Hong Kong and Macau markets. We are looking forward to a long and fruitful collaboration” said Jonathon Hesketh, Managing Director at Parker Coonawarra Estate
