The Real Companies Behind Your Favorite Alcohol At Costco
Costco’s wine selection is varied enough to impress wine aficionados of any level, as these wines come from a variety of winemakers around the world.
The Kirkland Signature brand alone is made by many different winemakers from California’s E. & J. Gallo Winery to Texas’ MISA Imports, Inc. and Connecticut’s Ethica Wines.
Cotes de Provence Rosé
Costco’s Kirkland Signature Cotes de Provence Rosé is one of the chain’s most popular wines and it’s actually made by Olivier Sumeire of Familie Sumeire.
Hailing from France’s Cotes de Provence Appellation region, the wine has a light body with notes of strawberry, melon, citrus, and peach with a slightly salty finish.
Hard Seltzer
When it comes to Kirkland Signature Hard Seltzer, it’s uncertain who the producer is, but most believe Patco Brands is behind the sparkling, alcoholic drink.
As the producer of other in-house brands like Kroger, Target, Meijer, and Whole Foods Market, Patco is known for brewing high-quality spirits and Costco’s seltzer is no exception.
Champagne Brut
Costco’s Kirkland Signature Champagne Brut is made by Manuel Janisson of Thibaut-Janisson, a winery located in the small Champagne village of Versenay, France.
Known for blending tradition with a modern approach, Manuel Janisson is the perfect producer for Costco’s Champagne Brut, which has notes of green apple and citrus.
Costco Kirkland Signature blanco and reposado tequilas are high-quality spirits produced by Destilleria Santa Lucia, located in Jalisco, Mexico.
With more than eight decades of tequila-making history, Destilleria Santa Lucia produces high-quality, authentic tequila that is then imported to the U.S. by MPL Brands.
