Demand has grown for Constellation

Constellation Brands is to invest US$20m in its Californian wineries to help keep pace with demand for its premium lines.

The investment will expand its growing, crushing, fermenting, storing and bottling capacities in the US state, Constellation said today (26 September). “The need for more land, fermenters, tanks and bottling lines is a direct result of the success of our brands,” said Jay Wright, president of Constellation's wine & spirits division.

Constellation’s premium portfolio, which includes Rex Goliath, Black Box, Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi, Clos du Bois and Mark West wines, has seen positive growth this year, Constellation said.

The expansion is expected to be completed by the end of 2013.

Constellation said it intends to add 15 to 25 employees to accommodate the increased production and operations activities.
