Press Release

A New Generation of Winemakers Is Reshaping Israel’s Vineyards

royal-wine-corpBranford, CT – About 2,000 feet above sea level, and 30 miles to the northwest of Israel’s largest and most vibrant city, Tel Aviv lies hills rich with pines, oaks and scrubs. The hills are indisputably at the beginning of Israel’s winemaking transformation and have emerged as a top winegrowing region. Now featured as this month’s Cover Page of the world renowned magazine Wine Spectator, Isreal is a region with some of the most fascinating wines being imported to the USA.

“There are three main regions in Israel for wine making – Judean Hills, Galilee and the Golan Heights”, said Matthew Murphy, President of Murphy Distributors in Branford. “While customers seeking kosher wine options remain the principal buyers of Israeli wines, we find our retailers say there’s growing interest among non-kosher buyers.”

“In fact, even though Israeli wines remain rooted in red grapes, there is a growing consensus among Israel’s best winemakers that a new generation of white wines will be an important part of the mix. Blind tastings were reviewed on 120 wines from Israel and more than 30 scored an outstanding 90 points or higher on Wine Spectator’s 100-point scale”, Murphy added.

“The well-structured Rhone-style white blends, minerally Chardonnays and fruity Sauvignon Blancs – the evidence is compelling that the whites will be exceptional wines,” said Murphy.

White bottlings represent the most striking improvements in the Israeli wine scene over the past few years as skilled Israeli vintners raised the quality significantly. Vintners are beginning to explore the native grapes of the West Bank-a region showing ample promise for the years to come.

Royal Wine Corp. (RWC), is the world’s largest kosher wine producer and importer. Royal Wine Corp controls much of the kosher wine market as well as Israeli wines in the U.S. They are responsible for changing the image of kosher wines of the past and replacing it with a reputation for quality.

“Royal Wines Corp. has been successful in migrating Israeli wine out of strictly the kosher section,” says Murphy. “There’s been a significant growth in Israeli wine sales in the U.S. People are curious about what Israeli wines have to offer. and we are proud to be the exclusive distributor in the State of CT.”

Royal Wine Corp.’s commitment to perfection and family tradition spans over eight generations with a growing portfolio of domestic and international wines from traditional wine producing regions of France, Italy and Spain to up and coming ones like Israel, New Zealand and Argentina.

“We are very proud to be offering Connecticut’s largest and certainly best selections of kosher wine and spirits available,” said Matthew Murphy, President of Murphy Distributors. “Royal Wine Corp and their extensive family of wineries offer an impressive kosher variety of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot, Riesling, Sauvignon, Syrah and Shiraz, among many more that include champagne and a spirits variety from Mediterranean regions that have been producing wine for centuries,” said Murphy.

“Changing the perception of ordinary to exceptional is what Royal Wine Corp has accomplished. It brands their growth and vision. Murphy Distributors identifies totally with their philosophy and it is synonymous with our rapidly developing reputation to place and grow exceptional supplier brands in key Connecticut accounts,” he added. “We are currently delivering to retailers and restaurants throughout Connecticut and are focused on working directly with Royal Wine Corp to ensure the successful launch of all new products in the market,” Murphy added.

Bohigas Brut Cava Reserva – Perfect Pairing for Weddings

Branford, CT – Murphy Distributors is proud to be the exclusive distributor of Bohigas Brut Cava Reserva, a sparkling wine from Spain in the State of Connecticut. Bohigas Brut Cava Reserva has achieved recent stellar reviews in the Wall Street Journal as a perfect wedding wine and as a remarkable alternative to champagne for wedding celebrations by sommeliers.

 

Bohigas Cava Reserva Email

 

“Summer is quickly descending upon us and proves once again to be one of the busiest times for wedding receptions. Consequently, champagne and sparkling wines sales increase,” said Matthew Murphy, President of Murphy Distributors in Branford, CT.

“As we shift our mindsets to crisp whites , roses and sparkling wines, Bohigas’s Brut Reserva Cava stands out as a sparkling wine with mass appeal,” he added. A good wedding wine cannot be too extreme. The pleasant and refreshing Bohigas Brut Cava Reserva  is easy to drink, is more interesting than Prosecco and a worthy alternative to Champagne—and costing about a third less per bottle,” said Murphy.

The Bohigas family has been making wine from their estates in Catalunya (about 45 miles west of Barcelona) since 1290. The father/daughter team has 150 hectares under vine, on which they grow a number of indigenous re
d and white varietals, including Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada, which are used to make their Cavas.

Their Brut Reserva is a relatively small production, with only 6,000 cases made per year. Harvest of the grapes is done in the evening to take advantage of the cool temperatures. The first fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats. The wine is then bottled along with yeast and some added sugar (called dosage, a practice typical in making sparkling wines) for the second fermentation which takes place in the bottle in their underground cellar, where the wine stays for 24 months before riddling and disgorgement.

In the glass you’ll find a pale yellow color with subtle green and golden hues. This zesty but soft and just slightly off-dry Spanish cava, is marked by a bright green-apple note. Slightly subdued, the bouquet has subtle hints of lemon and lime zest, crushed flower and yeast. On the palate you’ll find a surprisingly dense wine with constant effervescence, tight bubbles framed by moderate acidity and subtle minerality making the wine very food friendly.

 

“The Bohigas family shares our passion for providing the best products in the industry, taking pride in all they do. It is the higher standard they project that has set them apart from other wineries. It is also what brings us together. Murphy Distributors shares the passion for having the highest standards in the industry. We’re not just another distributor; we represent something different as well, and that is exceptional brands and branding.”  Murphy added.

” Bohigas Brut Cava Reserva is synonymous with our rapidly developing reputation to place and grow supplier brands in the Connecticut market,” Murphy said.  “We are currently delivering to retailers, restaurants and wedding venues throughout the State of Connecticut.”

Please ask your local retailer if they carry Bohigas Brut Cava Reserva sparkling wine.  For more information and a complete list of current retail outlets, contact Murphy Distributors 203-483-3100 or email at info@murphydist.com.

Murphy Distributors Congratulates Client Punzoné Organic Italian Vodka On Epic Win

Punzone BottlesBranford, CT – Murphy Distributors is proud to congratulate Punzoné Vodka on winning the Organic Vodka of the Year Award for 2015. Murphy Distributors is the exclusive distributor for Punzoné Organic Vodka in the State of Connecticut.

“The Double Gold Medal in the Bar Business Magazine Spirits Competition is the highest award that can be given by our esteemed judges….” “…It is a win that is no easy accomplishment with such fierce competition in the market. It defines a true standout” – Art Sutley, Publisher, Bar Business Magazine

With organic food gaining speed in America, it makes sense that organic liquor is making its way to the shelves as well. The concept is fairly straight forward—the spirits are made from organic raw ingredients. Securing such extensive organic certification is no small feat. Each ingredient must be traced back to its growth origins and fields must only use natural fertilizers and encourage biodiversity.

“Frank Guererra, CEO and Founder of Punzoné, is a first generation Italian American from New York City. With his Mediterranean roots, he grew up with a penchant for healthy food and drink, Punzoné (that’s Italian for “punch”) began as a popular drink he’d make for parties. Eventually he came up with the idea of making vodka in Italy. With water from the Italian Alps and organic wheat from Piedmont, this vodka gets distilled through a continuous five-column distillation system. It has a very smooth consistency whose flavor rests on the tip of the palate. It’s good enough to sip alone, but mixes easily. The brand offers two fruity and refreshing flavors, Blood Orange and Lemoncino, ” said Matthew Murphy, President of Murphy Distributors. “Certified organic & authentically Italian, this trio of Vodkas is winning over Americans daily,” added Murphy.

“Guerrera shares our perseverance, passion, and tenacity to break into an industry primarily dominated by established players. It is what differentiates us. People are not used to Italian vodkas, for one, and Punzoné is positioning itself as a luxury, organic vodka. We’re not just another distributor; we represent something different as well, and that is luxury brands and branding.” Murphy added.

Punzoné’s Blended, not flavored, Vodkas offer two unique varieties – Punzone Blood Orange Originale 34 Proof is an exquisite fusion of the ultra-premium Punzone Vodka enlivened with a delicate blend of red Sangiovese grapes and blood orange from Calabria.

Punzoné Lemoncino 34 Proof (not Lemoncello) is a delicate blend of the ultra-premium vodka refreshed with a unique fusion of white Chardonnay grapes and Sicilian lemon.

Punzoné Vodka has received the International 5-Star Diamond award consecutively since 2012 by the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences.
“Punzoné Organic Italian Vodka is synonymous with our rapidly developing reputation to place and grow supplier brands in the Connecticut market,” Murphy said. “We are currently delivering to retailers and restaurants throughout the State of Connecticut.”

Please ask your local retailer if they carry Punzoné Organic Vodka. For more information and a complete list of current retail outlets, contact Murphy Distributors203-483-3100 or email at info@murphydist.com.

Murphy Distributors – Reaching for the Brass Ring

Matt_MurphBranford, CT – At just 23 years old, Matthew Murphy had a vision – to introduce the world’s finest wines, craft beers, and artisan spirits to those who appreciate quality.
Murphy is notably one of the youngest distributor founders in the country. His passion and enthusiasm for his business was ignited when he traveled extensively through Europe and later lived in South American countries where he learned the intricacies of wine and its creation. Living in Argentina where wine is a huge part of their culture, fueled his passion to help a friend establish a wine importing company in Natal, Brazil. Up until then, Natal had not experienced much of a “wine culture.”

“We started importing Argentine wine and really just tried to get people to drink it,” said Murphy. Their efforts paid off as Brazil developed its own culture of drinking wine.

Returning to his Connecticut roots in 2008, Matt channeled his energy into founding his original company, Do Valle. As the company grew, he began importing wines from international and domestic vineyards and the company name was changed to Murphy Distributors to align itself more with its expansion into the craft markets of beer and spirits.
The company is focused in providing superior service and developing positive relationships with diverse suppliers and customers in order to build a world class company. Committed to being a valued resource to their suppliers, Murphy Distributors partners their suppliers to build brands with a strategic focus on marketing. The goal is to obtain a high performance, results-producing culture. Each day, Murphy Distributors strives to earn, build and maintain a positive relationship of trust in the community. Additionally, the company leverages the press and social media to gain recognition.

The wine, beer and spirits business is among the most competitive industries in the U.S. How does a distributor separate itself from the rest? Murphy explains that products are exclusive to the distributor in Connecticut but the retail shelf space is the brass ring. Having a different set of products and using a competitive edge to make Murphy Distributors more valuable to their customers is what it’s all about.

Murphy Distributors leverages its strong customer relationships and rapidly developing reputation to place and grow supplier brands in key Connecticut accounts. Specialists in brand development, grass roots marketing and abilities to tie product, market and community trends together, the Murphy Distributors team with Matt Murphy at the helm, is making a distinctive mark on Connecticut’s liquor distribution industry. Their goal is to help their customers (who are referred to as members) grow businesses in a B2B fashion. The vehicle to grow the businesses is through beverages, but Murphy Distributors also support the businesses with brands that offer better margins for more success and profits. In turn, it helps the community by providing jobs.
America’s wine and spirits wholesalers are at the center of a two hundred billion dollar industry, which results in the collection of over $55 billion in federal, state and local taxes annually. Wholesalers alone employ more than 63,000 workers, who collectively earn nearly $5 billion in wages each year.
Today, the state’s wine and spirits industry supports a multi-billion dollar economy, employs hundreds of thousands of workers, and provides millions of dollars in tax revenue to the state and federal governments.
The state’s 142 wine and spirits wholesaler locations are a crucial part of the responsible and efficient
distribution system that provides adults with access to a wide variety of quality products from around the world.
• The wine and spirits industry supports 10,820 jobs, which includes more than 1,250 workers at wholesaler firms and $121,40 million in wages.
• The total economic impact of the industry in Connecticut is nearly $12,252,017,400.
• Beyond wages and economic impact, the modern wine and spirits industry in Connecticut generates a total of more than $83,901,554 in state business and consumer taxes.

Murphy Distributors strives to honor long-standing commitments that are in place and have forged many meaningful charitable relationships over the years.

“Our mission is to help local families in need, in local communities around the state. Our promise is to sponsor a family in need when one of our customers places an order with us; in their name – in their community, “ explains Matthew Murphy, founder/president of Murphy Distributors. “We recognize that our customers are the backbone to our business and we want to show our support for them in return by sponsoring a family on their behalf. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.”

Murphy Distributors prides itself on being a conscientious corporation, and has an admirable record of involvement and assistance with local charitable organizations. Involvement with Special Olympics and Branford Tip-a-Cop are yearly commitments. The company donates annually to over 100 charities through tastings and direct donations. A division of the company “Buy Wine, Help CT” gives to local families in the community that are in need.
In 2014, Murphy received the “Small Business Person of the Year”. Murphy was recognized for his achievements in business and in his community as well as his role in helping to drive the state’s economic growth.

The extreme temperature fluctuation during the growing season results in uniquely flavorful wines.
“There are four wines currently available from Vintage Cowboy Vineyard, focusing on three different red varietals – Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel,” said Murphy.
The 2013 CHARDONNAY offers a bright aroma of pineapple, pear and lemon zest while the crisp Grenache Blanc is complimented by bright flavors of grapefruit and ripe melon.
The 2012 Merlot is a complex wine of rose, plum, and cherry blossom aromas and has a velvety taste of toasted coconut, baked caramel, and sweet spice.
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is medium bodied and boasts distinctive aromas of fresh black cherry, vanilla and wild black berries.
