McLane Beverage Distribution Inc. has applied to the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control for a license to import and wholesale wine in Virginia. The address listed on the application is that of McLane Mid-Atlantic, one of the area’s biggest employers. From its Stafford County distribution center, McLane Mid-Atlantic distributes goods to grocers in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

McLane Co. is a subsidiary of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, which announced in March that McLane was acquiring Kahn Ventures Inc., a wholesale distributor of distilled spirits, wine and beer in Georgia and North Carolina. Buffett said at the time that the acquisition was an opportunity to “innovate, grow and lead the beverage industry.”
