FORT LAUDERDALE, April 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Splash Beverage Group, Inc. (OTCQB: SBEV) (https://www.SplashBeverageGroup.com) (“Splash,” “SBEV” or “the Company”), a holding company with a leading portfolio of beverage brands, announces today that its beverage innovations Copa di Vino and Pulpoloco Sangria will be distributed throughout the North Carolina markets in a partnership with Johnson Brothers, a leading wine, spirits and beer distributor providing world-class service to customers across the U.S.
SBEV’s Copa di Vino is the leading producer of premium wine by the glass in the United States, and its premium Pulpoloco Sangria is crafted and imported from Spain using only the best blend of Spanish ingredients, aseptically filled and packaged in an eco-friendly CARTOCAN® to naturally enhance the true flavors of authentic Spanish Sangria.
Johnson Brothers (JB) has been a family-owned business for more than 66 years, representing industry-leading suppliers as well as the best local brands. JB recently acquired Mutual Distributing Co., one of the largest wine and beer distributors in North Carolina, strategically extending Johnson’s domestic footprint geographically.
Distribution via Johnson will cover the area west of Route 95 in North Carolina to the area east of Route 85, encompassing Fayetteville (home of Fort Bragg) and through Raleigh, one of the fastest-growing tech development hubs in the country.
Currently, there are 35 sales reps, 10 managers and six KAMs (key account managers) handling the SBEV account, with incremental increase in sales force and management alongside opportunities and demand covered by Johnson.
“The partnership with Johnson has our wine/sangria brands joining the most elite domestic and international wines covered by JB in North Carolina,” states Bill Meisner, president and chief of marketing for Splash Beverage Group.
“With 40 years’ experience distributing wine, specialty beers and spirits, we’ve found an ideal partner for this region, complementing our existing distribution in this region. Shareholders and consumers alike will recognize a rapid entry to market via established partners that give us a leg up in entering markets throughout the country toward expedited growth and overall exposure for our unique portfolio of beverage brands,” Meisner continued.

About Copa Di Vino
Copa di Vino is the leading producer of premium wine by the glass in the United States. Founder and owner, James Martin, discovered the concept on a bullet train adventure through the south of France. A year later, he brought the technology to his hometown of The Dalles, Oregon, located in the majestic Columbia River Gorge. His passion for wine led to Copa di Vino – wine in a glass – a ready-to-drink wine glass that could go anywhere without the need for a bottle, corkscrew or glass. Just open and enjoy! Wine is no longer trapped in the bottle!
