Drinks distributor EeBriaTrade is increasing its online offering to include wine from UK producers. Alongside its established portfolio of over 800 beer and cider producers, British winemakers of all sizes are now able to utilise EeBriaTrade’s unique marketplace model and tap into their diverse customer base of over 15,000 trade customers through their nationwide distribution network.
Much like the craft beer ‘revolution’ in the UK over the last decade, with UK brewers springing up all over the country and winning international recognition, there has been an ever-increasing buzz around British produced wine, with UK winemakers now regularly winning awards at international competitions. In 2019 there were 658 commercial vineyards in Britain and this number is ever increasing with new entrants to the market capitalising on the increasing customer demand for homegrown quality produce. Wine production is predicted to reach 40 million bottles by 2040 to meet consumer demand for British made wines, a trend all the more likely to be secured by the changing consumer habits and move towards local and British made goods brought on by the recent lockdown.
EeBriaTrade has recognised that their customer base of largely independent and discerning trade buyers are equally keen to find a wine supply that is flexible and easy to use and grants access to both the potentially harder to find and recognisable/award-winning British products. Equally, EeBriaTrade’s alternative approach to drinks distribution works perfectly for vineyards small and large, allowing them to easily and quickly list their products and control the prices that they want to sell at, controlling the messaging and tasting notes and accessing the nationwide market with EeBriaTrade’s built-in logistics support.
With more than 20 vineyards registered to use the site at launch this week, there are many more expected to follow in the coming weeks. Customers from today can access a wide range of wineries and vineyards on EeBriaTrade with a wide selection of different styles and varieties, such as Chapel Down, Beacon Down, Sharpham Wines, Meophams, Giffords Hall, Off The Line, Carr Taylor plus many more.
Quote from David Jackson – EeBriaTrade CEO
“We’re excited to be supporting English wine producers the same way we’ve worked with over 800 beer and cider producers for the last 7 years, giving them easy access to the national market. It’s a natural step for us to expand our offering beyond beer and cider giving our customers additional choice and moving towards our ultimate aim to be a one-stop-shop for discerning trade drinks buyers across the UK.”
