about constellation ventures

We are passionate producers of iconic beer, wine and spirits brands and we are looking to support emerging brands and technologies that represent the future of the beverage alcohol industry.

At Constellation Ventures, we believe innovation is about connection. We are connecting new ideas, people, technology, and brands to move forward together in a competitive and ever-changing industry.

We look forward to broadening our connections and our horizons with you.


Without much more than a scarred wooden desk, an archaic adding machine and eight employees, Constellation’s founder, Marvin Sands, began a small bulk wine business in upstate New York more than 70 years ago. Back then, Marvin never dreamed that from this modest start his venture would eventually grow into the global total beverage alcohol company Constellation Brands is today. We’ve grown but we’ve never forgotten our roots or the values that got us here.

We know what vision, tenacity, hard work and passion can yield.

We understand the value in dreaming big.
We support smart risks and out-of-the-box thinking.
We applaud the visionaries who are shaping tomorrow’s beverage alcohol landscape.

And now we are in a position to help the next generation of entrepreneurs realize their dreams and bring their visions to life.
