Whole Foods offers Hattingley Valley across the US

English sparkling wine producer Hattingley Valley has been chosen as one of just nine wines that US retailer Whole Foods is promoting nationwide in the run up to Christmas.

From 1 November to 31 December, the estate’s Classic Reserve sparkling will be available in 420 stores in 40 states, making it the first English wine available right across the US.

Hattingley Valley secured US distribution last year with Valkyrie Selections and is already in numerous venues in California, Massachusetts, New York and Tennessee.

Gareth Maxwell, commercial director at Hattingley Valley, said: “We’re very proud that we have been so well received in the US market, especially with the country now accounting for 13% of our overall sales. The team has worked hard to raise brand awareness and fly the flag for the English wine category in the States and we see this new relationship with Whole Foods Market as a milestone achievement.”

Devon Broglie MS, global wine buyer for Whole Foods Market, added: “We were truly impressed by the quality of Hattingley’s wines and we can see the UK emerging as a premium wine region of the world. We look forward to seeing this wine getting out onto our customer’s tables this holiday season and beyond.”
