As part of their total beverage alcohol strategy in the U.S., Constellation Brands decided last month to move their wine and spirits portfolio from Young’s Market to Columbia Distributing in both Washington and Oregon. The change became effective on June 1st, Columbia already handles distribution for Constellation’s beer portfolio.
As part of the change Columbia will create a separate wine and spirits division. The company currently handles logistics for Young’s Market. Young’s Market will continue to handle Constellation Brands portfolio in Alaska and Idaho.
