Pacific Highway Wines today announces a partnership with Grupo Faustino of Spain. Effective January 1, 2019 Pacific Highway is the exclusive importer, sales and marketing agent for Bodegas Faustino, Bodegas Campillo and Bodegas Portia in the US market.
“We are honored to be selected to represent the Martinez family’s Grupo Faustino and build Faustino, Campillo and Portia in the US”, remarks Mark Giordano, President Pacific Highway Wines. “With over 150 years of family winemaking in Spain, the Martinez family’s history, dedication, investment and business savvy is nothing short of inspirational. We are excited and dedicated to grow their brands in the US market.”
Francisco Honrubia, Director General Grupo Faustino, commented, “This is a next chapter for us in the USA and we look forward to working closely with the team at Pacific Highway Wines to build and create new opportunities for our wineries. As a family business, we are deeply invested and growing in all key wine markets. Around the world, we continue to build our brands, closely engage with trade and consumers, and increase our market share.”
A total of sixteen new core skus will be added to the Pacific Highway portfolio. Two brands from Rioja DOCa, Bodegas Faustino and Bodegas Campillo, capture the exciting dichotomy of the region, from deeply traditional Gran Reserva vertical legacy to ultra-modern single vineyard Rioja Alavesa. The third brand, Bodegas Portia, is based in Ribera del Duero and offers an artistic experience of architecture, visual arts and hand-crafted expressive regional wines.
