History

The Globus Wine history

Henning Andersen, Nicholas Hammeken and Uwe Petersen, experienced senior wine industry people, envisioned the growth in the bag-in-box wine segment and founded Globus Wine and Globus Wine GmbH (Germany) in 2006 – at a time when the segment made up only 5% of total wine sales.

A state-of-the-art filling facility just outside Copenhagen with a capacity of almost 28 million litres per year and a storing capacity of 500.000 litres was established.

From Denmark to the rest of Northern Europe

From its early days, Globus Wine marked itself as a major distributor Denmark. Following the early successes, Globus Wine developed strong market presence in the other Nordic countries while continuing its successes in the northern German and Baltic regions.

Lars Rasmussen joined the group of owners and the management of Globus Wine, bringing added and new strengths to the organisation.

Good ratings and awards

Since its establishment, Globus Wine – in cooperation with the leading retail chains in Denmark – secured a large part of the ever-growing bag-in-box market.

In 2010 Globus Wine was AA credit rated by Dun and Bradstreet – the world’s leading source of commercial information and insight on businesses. Globus Wine was also named as one of Denmark’s 10 fastest growing companies by the Danish business paper Børsen.

Globus Wine launched a new production bag-in-box line in 2012. This has almost tripled Globus Wine’s capacity while still ensuring good quality to its customers – retailers and wine producers.
