Cavit Collection

Cavit combines more than a half-century of winemaking expertise, the dramatic landscape and terroir of northern Italy, and a profound enjoyment of the good things in life to produce their quality product.

Cavit swept onto the radar of American wine lovers in the 1970s as a pioneer of a then little-known white wine called Pinot Grigio. Prized for its crisp, elegant character, fruit flavors and delicate floral aroma, Pinot Grigio is a demanding grape to cultivate, but has flourished in northern Italy for over a century. Cavit has consistently championed this varietal in the U.S.

Cavit produces a full range of high-quality, approachable and food-friendly wines including Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot, Moscato, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Red Blend.

La Crema

When La Crema was founded in 1979, the Russian River Valley had yet to establish itself as one of California’s most important regions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The first few vintages at La Crema were devoted to learning the intricacies of cold-climate viticulture and winemaking along with the task of procuring first-class vineyards for fruit.

La Crema’s vineyards are all harvested by hand. The winemaking techniques are primarily traditional to ensure that the wines are true to both the variety and the terroir. The Chardonnays are whole-cluster pressed and fermented and aged in French oak on the lees with bi-monthly battonage to add texture and complexity. The Pinot Noirs are cold soaked for five to eight days before fermentation in small, open-top fermenters and aging in a combination of new and used French oak barrels. As with the Chardonnay, La Crema’s Pinot Noirs are pure, accurate and reflective of their origin.

Titletown Brewing Company Honored at NBWA Convention

Las Vegas, Nev. – The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA), which represents America’s 3,000 independent beer distributors across the country, is pleased to present the NBWA Brewer Partner Marketing Innovation Award to Titletown Brewing Company of Green Bay, Wisc. Now in its third year, the Brewer Partner awards recognize brewers for building strong partnerships, providing valuable education and growing their brands through supportive partnerships with beer distributors.

“It’s great to see the relationships Titletown Brewing Company has built with its distributors,” said NBWA President & CEO Craig Purser. “Together, Titletown is no longer just a cozy little spot to have a beer in Green Bay. This brewer is doing some really innovative things and making pretty big waves throughout Wisconsin.”

Titletown Brewing Co. recently changed to a brewery with statewide capabilities after 20 years as an 1,800 barrel per year brewpub. Since making the conversion two and one-half years ago, it now produces 7,500 barrels per year.

Its primary focus was on growing its brand in local markets once it entered distribution. Sponsorships of local farmers’ markets, festivals and tap takeovers resulted in going from zero to more than 30,000 cases of distributed beer in Titletown’s first two years in Green Bay.

The combination of rapid statewide growth through distributors, renovation of old historic buildings in Green Bay and rebranding led to Titletown Brewing Co. winning the Best Brewpub in America, not one year but two, from the USA Today's People Choice Awards.

“The selection of a network and development of a distribution strategy was a challenging process,” said Jim Kratowicz, CEO of Titletown Brewing Company. “We have a great product, a great brand story and tremendous upside; however, we would not be where we are today without the advice, guidance and partnership of our distributors.”

Bell’s Brewery of Kalamazoo, Mich., was honored as NBWA’s 2017 Brewer Partner of the Year and Catawba Brewing Company of Morganton, N.C., was recognized with the Brewer Partner Sales Execution Award. The awards were announced during NBWA’s 80th Annual Convention and Trade Show at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nev.
