Isiah Thomas’ Cheurlin Champagne Hits Sam’s Club, Target and Walmart

    In celebration of his award-winning champagne, NBA Hall of Famer and entrepreneur Isiah Thomas formally announces Cheurlin Champagne will hit shelves in Sam’s Club, Target and Walmart stores through a national distribution partnership with the country’s leading national retailers throughout the first and second quarters of 2021.

    A history maker in his own right, Thomas is pleased to rollout this major evolution during Black History Month in over 320 brick-and-mortar stores nationwide as Cheurlin remains one of the fastest-growing champagnes in the country owned by an African American.

    Brought to the United States in 2016, Cheurlin Champagne has grown tremendously through word-of-mouth initiatives and a strong base of loyal fans and supporters of Isiah Thomas, his brand, and his business acumen. In just over five years, Cheurlin has become one of the largest first press of the grape champagnes in the world with zero to low added sugar in all products. Cheurlin is also a consecutive Champagne Producer of the Year award recipient.
