TV presenter Graham Norton's own wine range has been taken on by Matthew Clark from today (March 1).

The star makes his wines in collaboration with Invivo Wines, a New Zealand operation, which began supplying The Graham Norton show with wines back in 2011. 

In 2014 the winery produced the first vintage of Graham Norton's Own Sauvignon Blanc in collaboration with the presenter.

It sold out in days in New Zealand and is now available in five countries, alongside two newer additions to the range a Shiraz and a Rosé.

Norton owns a stake in Invivo and gets involved in everything from bottling, sitting down with Invivo founders Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron (pictured), to selecting a blend from tank samples. The process is filmed and released alongside each new vintage launch.

 

 

Andrew Shaw, group buying director for Conviviality (which owns Matthew Clark), said: "We are delighted to be working with Graham Norton and Invivo Wines. The wines have already had significant success in the UK and we are looking forward to building on this through the various channels."
