As someone with previous experience in the production side of goods Stansfeld Scott Product Development Manager, Rajiv Ragoononan visited Accolade Park while vacationing in the UK. This was his impression - “Accolade Park is the largest, most technologically advanced bottling facility in the UK producing approximately 25 million cases per year and the majority of the facility is fully automated. Chris Bowles, Commerical Director AMESCA, and Matt Stone, Senior Inventory Manager, were eager to share everything about the plant, explaining how each line works and future plans for the facility. Accolade Park is testament to Accolade Wines’ commitment to high standards. There is no doubt in my mind that they run one of the best product facilities in the world. Overall it was a great tour.”
