Wirtz Beverage Illinois is the state’s oldest and most established distributor. Since beginning operations out of a single warehouse in 1946, the company has grown to become the flagship distributor of the Wirtz Beverage Group. Today, Wirtz Beverage Illinois reaches every corner of the state, utilizes the most innovative technology and employs the industry’s most knowledgeable sales force.
What began in a single warehouse has developed into a modern sales and distribution business with outposts nationwide working every day to serve the customer, the consumer and the Wirtz Beverage partners better.
The Wirtz family, led by patriarch Arthur, acquired its first wine & spirit distributorship in 1945. By embracing innovation and driving top-line growth time and again, the company has grown exponentially in every market it has entered. In fact, Wirtz Beverage was the first to embark on a multi-state operation that has now become the industry standard.
