Constellation Brands Inc: Record-Setting Charitable Giving Set by Constellation Brands' First-Ever Employee Match Day

Employees in Four Countries Participate in One-Day Event

More than 100 Organizations Worldwide Benefit from Company Program

VICTOR, N.Y., August 4, 2014 -
More than $125,000 in charitable giving is now making its way to over 100
organizations around the world, following the success of Constellation
Brands' first-ever Employee Match Day, which took place July 23 and engaged
Constellation employees in four countries.

The organizations receiving financial support from Constellation Brands, all
chosen by the company's employees, range from health care to arts centers,
and food banks to environmental causes. Constellation at the corporate level
matched all employee donations 1:1. As an incentive to stimulate giving,
Constellation picked 10 employee charities at random and donated an
additional $1,000 to each.

Dedicating a single day for all employees to donate in unison is a new feature
of the company's Employee Match Program, which debuted in 2011 and has
distributed nearly half a million dollars overall. Single day contributions
from the first Employee Match Day were equivalent to previous full-year
campaigns.

"Our goal with Employee Match Day was to make an even bigger impact in giving
back to our communities, and we succeeded beyond our expectations," said
Ginny Clark, senior vice president public affairs. "We're very proud to see
how deeply our philosophy of giving back is embraced by our employees,
wherever we do business around the world."

Employees in four countries - the U.S., Canada, Italy and New Zealand - took
part in the Employee Match Day program.

"We were thrilled with the response from our employees," said Rob Sands,
president and chief executive officer, Constellation Brands, Inc. "As our
company grows, so does our longstanding tradition of giving back in the
communities where we live and work. The momentum from our first Employee
Match Day will elevate all of our charitable giving."

This fall, Constellation Brands plans to introduce a new giving back
initiative, Nourishing Neighbors, designed to fight hunger in the communities
where employees live and work. The program will launch October 20-25, 2014
and focus on donating food, time and dollars to local food banks and related
organizations.
