Treasury Wine Estates Responds

Treasury Wine Estates responds to this story 

Treasury Wine Estates said in a statement it is “fully complying with state and federal laws in relation to the development, marketing and sale of this brand in the US” and hopes the “matter will be resolved.”

The Stag, and “imagery of this creature, has been associated with the historic St Huberts winemaker in Australia since 1862,” according to the statement from Australia. In June, the company introduced new wines in Australia under the “refreshed” brand: The Stag Chardonnay and The Stag Shiraz.

Wines produced in the United States under The Stag brand are from different wineries, according to the company.

The Stag wine “has been produced across a number of TWE’s facilities – not just specifically Stags’ Leap,” Barry Sheridan, vice president of marketing, Americas for Treasury Wine Estates, said in separate statement.
