In an effort to continue to strengthen its fine wine portfolio, National Distributing Company (NDC) - the US's fourth largest beverage alcohol distributing company - has purchased 100% of the stock of Atlanta Wholesale Wine, a distributor of premium wines and liquors.

Financial details were not disclosed.

"This is a great acquisition for NDC," said Jay Davis, chairman and CEO of NDC. "Atlanta Wholesale represents more than 400 wineries and vineyards. This deal not only provides NDC with some new great brands, but also with some tremendous synergy opportunities for our current suppliers and our company."
 
"This acquisition really strengthens NDC's position as a fine wine distributor in Georgia," added John Carlos, vice chairman, of NDC. "NDC is committed to growing its fine wine portfolio and this acquisition will allow us to provide our customers with an unmatched selection of fine wine brands."
 
The deal is effective immediately.
