Trivento, Concha y Toro’s Argentinean wine brand, led the charge as the company delivered outstanding UK growth figures over the 12-week period to 2nd January 2021. Concha y Toro UK sales grew by £27 million in this period, the greatest absolute value growth of any wine supplier in this market.1

Nielsen data revealed that over the 12 weeks to 2/1/21, Trivento entered the Top 10 branded light wines for the first time.1 Growing at 74 per cent year on year, in 52-week value data it currently sits in 11th place, up from 18th a year ago2, and sold over 1 million x 9 ltr cases in the calendar year.3

Trivento was one of three Concha y Toro brands in the Christmas Top 10, alongside Casillero del Diablo, which was fourth, and Isla Negra tenth.1

The unprecedented trading situation during 2020 translated into an unparalleled year for many off-trade brands, with all the Top 10 wine brands showing in value growth at year end.1

“We’re obviously delighted to be reporting these figures after the challenges of last year. It’s particularly encouraging given that we have even more exciting marketing plans for each of the brands this year, as we look to consolidate growth that has been driven by changes in shopper behaviour in 2020 due to the pandemic,” said Clare Griffiths, Commercial Director at Concha y Toro UK

Household penetration figures for Casillero del Diablo and Trivento also hit record levels for the brands, at 11 per cent and 7 per cent respectively.4

Trivento Marketing Manager Preety Johl revealed the brand has plenty more to come in 2021.

“We are so pleased with the stellar performance of Trivento, backed by strong investment, and it has enabled us to build ever more ambitious marketing plans for the coming year.”

The company will release more details of marketing focuses in the coming weeks.
