Wines

Diageo's wine brands represent approximately six per cent of our net sales. We produce a range of both new world and old world wines including, Sterling Vineyards and Beaulieu Vineyard.

In addition to our own wines, Diageo's wine merchants – such as Britain's Justerini & Brooks – continue centuries of tradition by offering exclusive wine imports to restaurants, hotels and private clients.

We also continue to invest in growing our wine collection and most recently added Rosenblum Cellars in North America to our stable.

Below is a selection of our wine brands.
