Hammonds toasts new winery client

Hammonds, led by partner Marco Zavala, has snared one of the largest and oldest Chilean wine producers as a new client.

The 120-year-old Viña Undurraga winery, which is under new ownership and management, has formulated aggressive expansion plans, including opening offices in the UK and US this year.

To support this expansion Viña Undurraga instructed Hammonds to provide legal services, including incorporation of a subsidiary in the UK and advice on tax, employment and immigration.

Viña Undurraga sells more than a million cases of wine a year in more than 60 countries worldwide.
