Chateau Diana Winery Joins Murphy Distributor’s Exclusive Distribution List

Branford, CT – Murphy Distributors is proud to announce it has obtained exclusive distribution rights for California-based Chateau Diana Wines.

Chateau Diana Winery was founded in 1981, but its beginnings were crafted along a career path that would take founder Tom Manning, his wife Diane, and later, his young family on a coast-to-coast journey.

Native New Yorkers, the Mannings moved to California with their four children in search of the American dream. Tom was lucky to be involved in the early days of a rapidly growing wine retailing group, Trader Joe’s. The owner personally selected Tom to develop Negociant Wine Brands.

With the rapid sales and success that Tom enjoyed, he seized the opportunity to open his own winery facility in 1981. Affectionately named after his wife, Chateau Diana was born in Healdsburg, CA.

In 1983, a dream was realized with the purchase of the LeBaron Ranch encompassing 60 acres in the Dry Creek Valley, California. Over 30 years later, the Manning family honors the LeBaron’s legacy of maintaining a family-owned winery. The business continued to grow with a sales office in Southern California.

“We are delighted to have been chosen as the exclusive distributor for Chateau Diana Winery,” said Matthew Murphy, President and founder of Murphy Distributors. “This is yet another example that Murphy Distributors continues to be one of the top Distributors of choice for suppliers in and entering the Connecticut market.”
“Chateau Diana boasts an impressive variety of classic portfolio as well as new offerings to their family of wines. They develop and distribute a rich portfolio while brilliantly packaging and creatively marketing to their target audience,” added Murphy. “The sales volume and national recognition was hard to ignore for us when we reviewed the winery as a perspective supplier and we embrace this as we continue to evolve as the new generation of distributor.”
The winery was chosen Winner of the 2014 & 2015 Winter WINE-land Spirit Award.

“We are currently delivering to select retailers throughout Connecticut,” added Murphy.

Please ask your local retailer if they carry wines from Chateau Diana winery for your next event.
