Constellation Brands Inc: Constellation Brands, Employees Team Up to Donate $100,000 for Northern California Wildfire Relief

Joint Effort to Benefit American Red Cross Disaster Relief Efforts

VICTOR, N.Y., Sept. 28, 2015 -
Constellation Brands, Inc. (NYSE: STZ and STZ.B) and its employees have joined
together to donate $100,000 to the American Red Cross, which is providing
disaster relief to the people and communities impacted by the recent
wildfires in Northern California. The company offered a two-to-one match on
all employee donations made to the American Red Cross from September 15 - 25.

"This collaborative effort shows how committed our employees are to giving
back to their communities," said Rob Sands, president and chief executive
officer, Constellation Brands. "While none of our wineries or vineyards were
directly affected by the wildfires, many of us have friends and neighbors who
were. We hope that our donation will help Northern California recover from
the devastating fires."

Soon after the wildfires started, employees began reaching out to the company
to learn how they could help. After the special two-to-one company match was
announced to employees, donations began coming in immediately.

"We can't thank Constellation Brands and their employees enough for this
incredible gift in support of our relief efforts following these devastating
wildfires," said Rosie Taravella, Regional Chief Executive Officer of the
American Red Cross, Western and Central New York Region. "Our volunteers have
been working tirelessly alongside local community groups to help the
thousands of Californians who have been forced from their homes, and thanks
to this type of generosity, the Red Cross will continue to be there in the
months ahead."

This donation is the latest effort of Constellation's Employee Match Program,
which gives employees the opportunity to make an even bigger impact when they
donate to the causes about which they are most passionate. So far this year,
the program has generated $378,000 in donations to causes around the world
that are important to Constellation employees.
