A Step In the Right Direction
Here’s a step in the right direction.
Jess Jackson, owner of Kendall Jackson and Jackson Family Estates and National Distributing have formed a new company that will focuse on distributing the bottlings of small wineries. Monument Fine Wines based in Maryland will serve the Washington D.C area. GM Elysa Kudo explains the new distributorship this way:
"We want to make sure they get deserved attention. With such large companies, a little mom-and-pop winery may not get its just due."
It’s no surprise that Jess Jackson is involved. Jackson has been a champion of small wineries for years, contributing to organizations and causes that help promote small wineries with time and money.
