Vinicom ensures distribution of Howard’s Folly

Vinicom ensures from now on the exclusive representation in the national market of wines from producer Howard’s Folly. With the addition of Howard’s Folly to our portfolio, Vinicom expands the range of Alentejo producers where we already had the Bojador and Tangente projects.

For Duarte Sousa Coutinho, commercial director at Vinicom, «the Alentejo region has a very consolidated reputation in the national and foreign markets and has been able to reinvent itself and present new projects such as Howard’s Folly. We’re excited to have a producer with the profile and positioning of Howard’s Folly and whose potential for growth in sales and awareness is huge.”

Howard’s Folly was created in 2002 by the British businessman and art collector Howard Bilton and the Australian David Baverstock, an unavoidable name in winemaking in Portugal where he has worked in companies such as Esporão, Symington Family Estates, Quinta do Crasto or Ravasqueira. Although the winery is located in the city of Estremoz, the vineyards are located in the Portalegre area, where they benefit from the freshness of the Serra de São Mamede.

Howard’s Folly is committed to the production of small batches of premium wines based on old vines of varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira, Aragonez, Castelão or Syrah. The company also produces a liqueur wine from Carcavelos resulting from a field blend of varieties such as Arinto, Galego Dourado, Boal, Rabo de Ovelha or João Santarém.

Howard’s Folly wines are now available on Vinicom website and can be purchased HERE.

Vale da Corça and Vinicom sign distribution partnership

Vinicom has just ensured the distribution of Brunheda wines from Douro producer Vale da Corça. This partnership confirms the growing bet in the Douro region where Vinicom already works with brands such as Quinta do Vale Meão, Lavradores de Feitoria or Quinta do Côtto.

The integration of the producer Vale da Corça adds diversity to the Douro wine portfolio, as they’re born in the Tua valley. Quinta de Brunheda, recognized as one of the most emblematic in the region, has been in the possession of the Mesquita family since 1720 and consists of 360 hectares of land where the typical Douro varieties are planted.

Vale da Corça wines are available from today in our Online Shop.
