FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – (NewMediaWire) – November 16, 2023 – Splash Beverage Group, Inc. (NYSE American: SBEV) (“Splash” or the “Company”), a portfolio company of leading beverage brands, today announced that retailing giant, Walmart, will be featuring the Copa di Vino brand in the Southeast U.S. The rollout will feature a minimum of 2 varietals of four packs of Copa di Vino. The Company expects shipping to begin in late Q1.
At Walmart’s Open Call 2023 event at its corporate headquarters in Bentonville, AR, Walmart offered a select group of brands the “Golden Ticket” award. Receiving the award means that the brand was selected as a new product and will be sold in Walmart’s physical store locations.
Bill Meisner, Splash Beverage Group’s President and CMO, commented, “The results of our rebranding efforts on Copa di Vino and the buildout of an expansive distribution network were attractive to the merchandising team at Walmart. We were thrilled to receive this amazing award from this incredibly important retailer and the confirmation that Copa di Vino will be awarded shelf space in Walmart during the upcoming shelf reset in 2024. This is just the start of an ever-growing adult-beverage relationship with Walmart.”
Robert Nistico, Splash Beverage Group’s Chairman and CEO, added, “This important authorization is yet another successful result of the Splash team, specifically Bill Meisner & Aida Aragon our SVP of National Accounts, working tirelessly building a strong foundation for our brands and company to grow in 2024. This also highlights the importance of the elite distribution network we have been building. This has been a necessary first step on the path to servicing large retail customers. You can’t overstate the importance of a partnership with a global retail giant like Walmart. We view Copa Di Vino as the innovator in quality single serve wine and look forward to seeing it on shelf with such a powerful retailer.”
