August 3rd – Washington, DC — Prestige-Ledroit Distributing announced this month its appointment as the exclusive Mid-Atlantic distributor for Dry Creek Vineyards.
The partnership aligns both companies by combining the strength of Prestige-Ledroit’s Mid-Atlantic relationships and Dry Creek Vineyards’ legacy as the pioneer of the Dry Creek AVA in Sonoma County.
Established in 1972, Dry Creek Vineyard remains family-owned and just celebrated its 50th Anniversary. When founder David Stare started Dry Creek Vineyard, he began the winery with a single-minded effort to offer the highest quality wine at a reasonable price. Dave realized that the success of the winery hinged upon providing “something special” in the bottle to keep customers coming back for more. Today, the second generation continues to build upon those early-established values. Dave’s daughter and president of the winery, Kim Stare Wallace, is wholly committed to the quality of wine produced at Dry Creek Vineyard. The goal remains the same: to produce high quality wines while being mindful of the original vision of the winery.
Chris Schmid, SVP of Prestige-Ledroit, “For our portfolio we continue to seek out iconic independent family-owned wineries and there is not a better example of one than Dry Creek Vineyard. They have a rich multi-generation legacy going back 50 years and have helped pave the way for the renaissance of winemaking and viticulture in the Dry Creek Valley. We aim to build off of the incredible success they have had and help reintroduce our market to their wines, which are better now than they ever have been.”
