June 30, 2016

Morales & Besa successfully advised Grupo Rojas, after the Grupo Huneeus, its partners in Veramonte, decided to sell its stake to the European firm Gonzalez Byass, giving way to a new partnership between the Spanish winery and Grupo Rojas. Veramonte is one of the most recognized and prestigious wineries in Chile, both for its location in the valleys of Casa Blanca, Colchagua and Apalta and the quality of its wines, whose brands include Neyen, Primus, Ritual and Veramonte, which are distributed in 37 countries and are leaders in the US market. Through this acquisition, Gonzalez Byass will begin to produce wines outside Spain, reinforcing its strategy of internationalization and enriching its portfolio of brands.

The team at M&B was led by partners Macarena Laso A. and Michel Diban G.with senior associate Maria Teresa Manubens.
