RUTHERFORD, California (April 19, 2021) — As international demand for Inglenook’s wines continues to grow, Todd DeVincenzi, President of Global Operations for Inglenook, is pleased to announce that the historic winery has renewed its partnership with New Generation Wines, importers and distributors of rare, fine and pioneering wines, champagnes and spirits in the United Kingdom. New Generation will exclusively represent Inglenook’s 1882 Cabernet Sauvignon, Edizione Pennino Zinfandel, RC Reserve Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc.
“We are proud to be working with New Generation in the United Kingdom,” said Inglenook’s President of Global Operations, Todd DeVincenzi. “It’s incredibly gratifying that Inglenook has received critical acclaim around the world. We are confident that New Generation will help Inglenook align with the finest restaurateurs and retailers in the UK.” Highlighting the brand’s international appeal, Inglenook’s 2013 Rubicon was one of Decanter’s “2020 Wines of the Year.”
New Generation has developed a portfolio of many of the world’s finest wines, champagnes and spirits, alongside a team that is dynamic and hugely knowledgeable. Sales and Marketing Director, James McKenna, said, “We are delighted to be working with Inglenook in the UK. This partnership comes at an important stage of our development and growth, and we believe there is a significant and exciting amount of potential in the premium wine market, across both on-trade and retail channels. Inglenook is a prestigious, quality-driven and historic estate. Their ethos is closely aligned with our portfolio credentials and business ‘DNA.’ We can’t wait to get started and look forward to a long and fruitful journey together.”
In addition to the four Inglenook wines that New Generation will represent exclusively, they will also support Rubicon, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Blancaneaux – three additional Inglenook wines that are sold through the winery’s negociant partners.
With a long history of innovative and forward-thinking leaders from Gustave Niebaum to John Daniel, Jr. to Francis Ford Coppola, Inglenook’s three principal stewards since 1879 have maintained an unwavering passion to create a wine estate that hearkens back to the European tradition, producing original, distinctly Napa wines that rival the best in Europe. That philosophy fits naturally into the New Generation portfolio.
Founded in 1879 by Gustave Niebaum as Napa’s first estate winery, Inglenook boasts an illustrious heritage, a renowned legacy of innovation and an outstanding portfolio of award-winning wines that have defined and established Napa as a world-class wine region. From Gustave Niebaum to John Daniel, Jr. to Francis Ford Coppola, Inglenook’s three principal stewards have shared a strong sense of vision and an unwavering passion to create a wine estate that hearkens back to the European tradition, producing original, distinctly Napa wines that rival the best in Europe. It remains the largest contiguous estate on the famed Rutherford Bench, Napa Valley’s finest area for producing spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon. Inglenook was also among the first Napa Valley wineries to have its vineyards certified organic more than 25 years ago.
The iconic Inglenook chateau was first constructed in 1887, and faithfully restored in 1997. Befitting the grandeur of the Inglenook estate, the chateau welcomes guests for seated tastings and special events. Experiences include tours of the Chateau, the Infinity caves, the vineyards, barrel tastings and culinary offerings under the direction of Winery Chef Alex Lovick who expertly pairs the wines with the seasonal, organic bounty of the expansive estate farm and orchards.
Inglenook is located at 1991 St. Helena Highway in Rutherford (Napa Valley), can be found on social media @inglenook1879 and online at www.inglenook.com.
