Centerra Wine Company Company History Timeline

1948

In 1948, the Car-Cal operation run by Mack Sands was closed, and all wine production was transferred to the facility in Canandaigua.

1951

In 1951, the younger Sands opened Richards Wine Cellars in Petersburg, Virginia, and asked his father to assume control of the operation.

1954

In 1954, however, Sands was lucky enough to come up with something most entrepreneurs only dream about--a widely successful product that catapults a company into a future of rapid growth and high profits.

1954 The company introduces the Richard's Wild Irish Rose brand of dessert wines, which becomes the firm's top brand.

1972

In 1972, the company was incorporated as Canandaigua Wine Company, Inc., and one year later, it went public.

1986

1986 Richard Sands, son of Marvin, is named president of the company.

1995

1995 The company purchases from United Distillers Glenmore, Inc.
