We advised Henkell Freixenet – the world’s leading sparkling wine producer – on becoming the sole shareholder in Henkell Freixenet Lietuva (formerly Filipolis). After acquiring a majority stake in Filipopolis – one of the leading importers and distributors of alcoholic beverages in Lithuania – in 2018, Henkell Freixenet has now taken over the remaining shares.

Dr. Andreas Brokemper, CEO of Henkell Freixenet, comments: “With the acquisition of Filipopolis we have completed our Baltic cluster. In only three years we were able not only to almost double our business, but also to make our strategic brands Freixenet and Mionetto leading Prosecco and Cava brands in the Baltic States. I’d like to thank the team for this great success and I’m sure we will keep this strong momentum for the future.”
