press release


“The definition of a great evening for me is friends, laughter and good wine. ..

I’m very proud to now launch my own range of  organic wines from Spain.” 

Gary Barlow 

"It has been a privilege to partner with Gary Barlow and .... launch his own range of organic wines." 

Paul Schaafsma, MD Benchmark Drinks 

Gary Barlow has launched Gary Barlow Organic, his own range of organic wines in partnership with Benchmark Drinks. These wines have been carefully crafted and developed by Gary reflecting his passion for quality, authentic wine. The wines are now available on and selected Carry Out Stores.

Whether as part of a celebration with loved ones or to wind down after a gig, Gary has acquired a taste for wine over the years and developing his own wine range has been a dream of his for as long as he can remember. He’s spent the past two years collaborating with London-based distributor Benchmark Drinks to create a well-balanced, sophisticated and sustainable wine range, with unique packaging featuring a stylish piano key design, an instantly recognisable nod to his incredible 30-year music career.

The medium-bodied red and refreshing, zesty white are the result of many months of wine development and following hours of tasting wines from across the world, Gary’s standout blends originated from Spain. Having spent time in Spain over the years, Gary has always enjoyed the local food and wine offering. He has been so inspired by the passion of those involved in the winemaking process and is very proud to now launch his own range of organic wines from Spain’s Castilla region.

The wines have been produced by Peninsula Wines in Spain. Founded by Andreas Kubach and Sam Harrop, they’re both Masters of Wine and renowned for their sustainability and “sympathetic winemaking”, embracing both nature and science to make wine with as little intervention as possible.

The Gary Barlow Organic RED is a juicy, unoaked wine, displaying aromas of red wild berries with a touch of rosemary and chocolate. The medium body and beautiful balance between the good fruit concentration, fresh acidity and fine tannins, make it a highly versatile food wine to match tapas, pasta and a wide range of savoury and meat dishes.

The Gary Barlow Organic WHITE is pale bright in colour, displaying aromas of lime and pear cut by a gentle note of anise. It shows a zesty, lingering lime palate. A refreshing wine, perfect to be drunk in summer with salads, poultry and light seafood dishes.

Gary Barlow is one of Britain’s most successful songwriters and record producers. As part of the group Take That, he has won eight BRIT Awards and sold over 45 million records. Aside from his achievements with Take That, he has also co-written and produced music for other renowned artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams.
