Savitas snaps ups Lost Buoy Wines

Adelaide-based Savitas, which makes wines from the Barossa Valley, has purchased McLaren Vale’s Lost Buoy Wines. 

The Lost Buoy brand (pic right) was established in 2012 and produces over 5,000 dozen cases per year.
 
It is currently distributed across Australia and internationally to Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada and the UK. 

Buyer Savitas has a focus on selling into the Chinese market. 

“I am very proud of what we have achieved with Lost Buoy since we launched and it is now time to hand the wheel over to the crew that will guide it on its next adventure," said Los Buoy founder Grant Kelley. 

Savitas Wines is run by CEO Chris Insanally with former Wolf Blass winemaker Matt O’Leary the winemaker. 

The Lost Buoy vineyards, which lie on top of the rugged limestone cliffs of Port Willunga will continue to supply shiraz and grenache varietals to the Lost Buoy brand.
