Hatch Mansfield becomes a Supporter of the Institute of Masters of Wine

The Institute of Masters of Wine is delighted to announce that Hatch Mansfield – UK specialist agents in premium wines made by independent, family-owned companies – has joined the IMW’s international supporter community.

Established in 1994 with Louis Jadot, Errazuriz and Villa Maria and headed up by Patrick McGrath MW, Hatch Mansfield remains fiercely independent and today represents 16 international wine companies.

They manage the UK distribution, sales and marketing for all the brands they represent: Robert Oatley (Australia); Caliterra, Errazuriz (Chile); Champagne Taittinger, Jean-Luc Colombo, Joseph Mellot, Louis Jadot, Terroirs et Talents (France); Gaja (Italy); Esk Valley, Left Field, Vidal, Villa Maria (New Zealand); Kleine Zalze (South Africa); CVNE (Spain); and Domaine Carneros (USA).

Patrick McGrath MWManaging Director Patrick McGrath MW (pictured) said, “Hatch Mansfield has always been a long term champion of the IMW through Errazuriz, Louis Jadot and Villa Maria and a number of our brands supported the Masters of Wine Endowment Auction in 2017, which raised over £1m. I was so proud to be part of that amazing achievement. We also have three Masters of Wine in our team, which is an impressive ratio for a business of our size. All of this made it a natural decision in 2019 to formalise our commitment to the IMW and we are delighted to become a Supporter.”

The IMW now has 27 Supporters from around the world, who work jointly with the IMW to promote its mission of excellence, interaction and learning across all sectors of the global wine community.

Adrian Garforth MW, Chairman of the IMW said, “The IMW has had a long-standing relationship with Hatch Mansfield through the Villa Maria Group and previous Supporters Viña Errazuriz and Louis Jadot. It’s fantastic to now have Hatch Mansfield as an official Supporter. They have contributed to the mission of the IMW supporting the MW study programme for many years, and Patrick has made a significant personal contribution to the IMW, from being a former Chairman to the extraordinary Master of Wine Endowment Auction. We look forward to further developing our link with Hatch and the brands they represent.”
