Fiji’s leading wine distributor, Victoria Wines, has commited its support for the Fiji International golf tournament 2015.
The family-run business, with four outlets in Port Denarau, Nadi, Nasau and Suva, is dedicated to importing and distributing fine wines from all over the world – from Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, Italy, North America, New Zealand, Spain and Portugal – through to Fiji’s many boutique island resorts and top restaurants.
The experience of participants at the Fiji International 2105 will be enhanced through the excellent range of wines being sponsored by Victoria Wines, along with their international wine partners: Wither Hills (New Zealand), San Pedro’s 1865 (Chile), Trapiche (Argentina) and Taittinger (France).
This is the second year that Victoria Wines has supported this premium international event.
“We expect, through our sponsorship of the tournament, to raise international awareness of the quality of food and wine experiences available in Fiji,” says Victoria Wines Managing Director, Liam Hindle.
“We are pleased to have Taittinger, San Pedro and Trapiche on board with us again this year, illustrating the value these companies see in the international visibility provided by this event. We are also thrilled to have Wither Hills join our wine partnership in 2015 for the first time.”
“Victoria Wines was a fantastic partner at our 2014 event. They added the finer touches to our event functions and corporate hospitality areas with the supply of their exclusive wines. We are very excited to have them back on board as a partner at the 2015 Fiji International and look forward to further leveraging their brand association with Fiji’s biggest sporting event.”, said Matt Porm, Head of Commercial for the Fiji International.
Wither Hills have indicated their excitement to be a part of the Fiji International Golf Tournament being held at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course later in October this year – “Wither Hills has a strong association with sport being the official wine of the All Blacks, so supporting the Fiji International golf tournament was an easy decision and an important part of our brand positioning in Fiji.”
