Mendota Heights, Minn.– Prestige Beverage Group has announced that it is now the exclusive U.S. importer for Doña Paula and its range of award-winning, premium Argentinian wines. Prestige will be responsible for the importing and sales of the entire Doña Paula portfolio, including Doña Paula Estate.
“We are excited to become the new U.S. partner for Doña Paula and look forward to adding their premium wines to our growing wine portfolio at Prestige,” said Mike Morgan, President of Prestige Beverage Group. “Doña Paula has built great momentum in the U.S. and we look forward to building upon it as more Americans are introduced to wines from Argentina.”
Doña Paula, one of Argentina’s most esteemed estate wineries, crafts all its wines exclusively from its own vineyard holdings—over 1,700 acres in the premium areas of Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valleys within the Mendoza region. Every acre is certified as sustainably managed. While Malbec is Doña Paula’s main focus, the brand has made innovation a priority with successful plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Cabernet Franc, amongst others, adding breadth and diversity to traditional Argentinian offerings. This unparalleled focus on quality has led to over 140 90+ point ratings from leading industry organizations.
“The expertise and knowledge of Prestige Beverage Group, together with its leadership in the industry, will allow us to capitalize on new opportunities in this fast-paced market and take Doña Paula to new heights,” said Andrés Lavados, CEO of Santa Rita Estates, which owns Doña Paula. “We are thrilled to be joining forces with the Prestige team to bolster Doña Paula’s presence in our most critical market.”
Doña Paula is the latest addition to the growing Prestige Beverage Group portfolio of award-winning wines from around the world, including Risata Wines, Yes Way Rosé, Le Grand Noir and Astoria Wines.
