Connecticut Distributors, Inc. (CDI) and Pernod Ricard presented a check for over $11,000 to the Connecticut Food Bank at a sales meeting on February 13, 2015. This is the fourth year that the two companies joined together on a sales effort that collected proceeds from Kenwood Wines per-bottle sales in the month of November. The donation enables the non-profit organization to offer 108,000 meals to people in Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Windham counties. Additionally, two new wine lines from California in CDI’s portfolio were presented: One Hope Wines from Robert Mondavi, Jr. and Two Lands Wine, a collaboration wine from Napa Valley. Spirit launches in February included Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream, Kinky Gold and Polly & Joan Cordials of Wallingford.
