Laurent-Perrier UK is to drop the still wine distribution arm of its UK business in a bid to focus on the buoyant Champagne category.

The company represents brands such as Marqués de Riscal, Trinity Hill and Thorn-Clarke in the UK but will now concentrate solely on its eponymous Champagne.

"Following considerable growth in Champagne, it is appropriate we focus all our resources on developing sales of Laurent-Perrier," said MD David Hesketh.

Enotria has been appointed as the new exclusive agent for Trinity Hill. The remaining two wineries stay with Laurent-Perrier until March.
