In the Virginia Wine Lover's newsletter, it was announced that Chateau Morrisette has reached a five-year agreement to export their wines to China with a sale of more than 1,150 cases. Frank C. Britt, publisher of the newsletter stated that this is "an initiative that grows the wineries' presence in the global marketplace...an exciting time for Virginia wine!"
The winery partnered with the Tianjin Commodity Exchange Company Limited (TJComex) to bring about new export sale opportunities. The partners will work to establish and promote the Chateau Morrisette brand in Mainland China and Hong Kong.
According to George Weldon, General Manager of Chateau Morrisette, "The Tianjin partnership is an integral step toward implementing our long-range strategy of increasing distribution both domestically and internationally. This five-year contract firmly positions Chateau Morrisette on the global stage as Virginia's premier winery and it serves as a testament to the quality wines produced by our winery."
