Garco Demands Access to Constellation’s Contract with Major Brands
You may recall that several of the major wine and spirits suppliers have found themselves in court after attempting to extricate their brands from their respective distributors in Missouri (see WSD 04-23-2013 ). Most of the lawsuits involve Missouri's largest distributor Major Brands. Recall Major Brands is still attempting to keep Bacardi from moving their brands via the state's franchise law (see WSD 08-13-2013), but lost Diageo's business to Glazer's (see WSD 06-26-2013). Then there's the much smaller Garco Wine Co., which is involved in similar litigation with Constellation Brands.
