King Estate Winery and Fjord Line of Norway have entered into a landmark agreement to carry a number of King Estate wines aboard the Norweigan company’s ships in both restaurants and duty free shops. The agreement will also likely lead to King Estate wines being sold in a select group of duty free shops throughout Europe. These duty free shop are operated by G Heinemann.
Ed King, King Estate CEO and Co-Founder, summed up the significance of this landmark deal with the following statement:
This signals the acceptance of Oregon wines at the highest level of global audience, a European customer that is sophisticated and demanding. Oregon has taken another step up.
