Connecticut Distributors (CDI), an affiliate of Breakthru Beverage Group, announced this week that it has acquired New England Wine & Spirits.

New England Wine & Spirits has achieved recognition for its portfolio of fine wines and direct imports, the company says, from their long-held relationships with suppliers in France, Italy, South Africa and South America.

With this acquisition, CDI will now have state-wide exclusivity for Barefoot Cellars, Bogle Vineyards and Wente Vineyards.

“We are motivated by what the future holds for CDI in terms of potential growth and our overall presence,” says John Parke, president of Connecticut Distributors. “This acquisition of New England Wine & Spirts, with their dynamic portfolio of brands, strengthens our position as the leading beverage company in the state of Connecticut. This is an exciting time for CDI, as we look forward to providing our customers with a stronger brand portfolio.”

This acquisition is effective May 1, 2018.

CDI will establish the New England Division, a new retail sales division that will continue to represent many of the brands that are currently sold by New England Wine & Spirits.
