Constellation Brands, the world’s leading premium wine company, has completed the sale of its Australian and UK business to Champ Private Equity of Australia. The transaction is valued at about A$290m (Eur210m). Constellation has retained a 20% interest in the business and received cash proceeds of about A$230m, which will be used to reduce borrowings.

The businesses sold include virtually all Constellation’s Australian, UK, and South African brands, wineries, facilities, vineyards, and the group’s 50% interest in Matthew Clark, the UK wholesale joint venture. The European business has been renamed Accolade Wines by Champ.
