Duckhorn Joins Breakthru’s Flock of Fine Wines in Illinois

Jul. 30, 2019


Fine wine is a waiting game; and one thing we’ve been waiting for is the chance to tell you that Breakthru Beverage is now the proud home to the Duckhorn Vineyards’ portfolio of fine wines in Illinois. For over 40 years, Duckhorn has made a name for themselves as experts in California wines and we cannot wait to share their newest creations with our customers in Illinois.

David Lockie, Executive Vice President, Breakthru Illinois, recently broke the news, sharing his excitement at being in business with a brand which Lockie said “has spent forty years establishing itself as one of North America’s premier producers of Napa Valley wines, resulting in a tradition of quality and excellence that continues today.”

Co-founded by industry luminaries Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn has a long, rich reputation for producing excellent wines. In 2017, Duckhorn’s 2014 Merlot was named the No. 1 Wine of the Year by Wine Spectator. In recent years, Duckhorn has produced many 90+ wines, such as their 2016 Chardonnay, and their 2013 The Discussion Napa Valley Red. They are routinely named one of the top wineries in the country (most recently by Wine and Spirits in 2017) and the company even brought home a recent award for CEO Alex Ryan’s leadership in the industry.

The Duckhorn commitment to quality mirrors our own here at Breakthru, and we look forward to working with them in the coming years to deliver exceptional American wine to businesses throughout Illinois. As of now, Breakthru Beverage Illinois is proud to bring you Duckhorn Vineyards’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc wines. Check with your Breakthru Sales Consultant for updates on new labels and vintages as they become available, and to add Duckhorn’s flock of fan favorites to your business today.
