Digital Wine Ventures (DW8) has signed up a new customer and a new alcoholic kombucha producer.

Henschke

Henschke has joined Digital Wine’s list of well-regarded brands to use WINEDEPOT’s integrated logistics, trading and order management platform.

Henschke is considered an iconic Australian wine brand. It’s well-known for producing exceptional red and white wines from vineyards located in Eden Valley, Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills for over 150 years.

“With an impressive six-generation family winemaking history, the Henschkes are as close you can get to royalty in our industry,” CEO Dean Taylor said.

“Their ‘Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz’, which sells for $865 per bottle if you can get your hands on some, is undoubtedly Australia’s most famous single-vineyard wine,” he added.

Digital Wines considers it an honour to have Henschke join the brands who use WINEDEPOT as a delivery service.

New Wave Brewing Co

Digital Wine Ventures has also signed up New Wave Brewing Co who is a producer of HALO, a refreshing, organic, alcoholic kombucha containing only natural flavours.

HALO is a suitable product for consumers who are after healthier alcoholic drinks as it contains less than one gram of sugar.

“While our platform has been built with wine in mind, we’ve discovered that it can service producers of other alcoholic beverages such as craft spirits, beers, ciders and ready-to-drink products equally well,” Dean stated.

“I’m a big supporter of innovation so it’s great to be directly involved with a business like NWBCo, who are paving the way by taking HALO to market in this newly emerging category,” he added.

This news has seen the company’s shares soar 31.3 per cent and trading for 2.1 cents each at 10:35 am AEST.
