He is now Executive Chairman at Constellation. His previous roles were Executive Vice President, General Counsel and CEO. He is also Chairman of the New York Wine and Culinary Center.

What is Constellation Brands?

Constallation is a international producer and marketer of beer, wine and spirits. It was founded in 1945 by Marvin Sands as a small wine producer in upstate New York. He sold wine in barrels to bottles. A few years later he already realized annual sales of US$ 1 million.

It now has more than 9,000 employees and 40 facilities. The company realizes annual sales of more than US$ 8 billion and a net profit of US$ 3.4 billion. The Sands family is the controlling shareholder of the company.

The company is known for brands as Corona, Modelo and Svedka Vodka.

How Much is The Sands Family Worth?

Rob and Richard have a net worth of US$ 3 billion each. The Sands family is Robert and Richard each own more than 15 million shares. (Share price at the time of this publication: US$ 200 per share).

Sands Family Philanthropy

The family has established the Sands Family Supporting Foundation. In 2016 they donated US$ 61 million to the Rochester Area Community Foundation

Where Do Rob and Richard Sands Live?

We found several homes owned by the 2 brothers. We believe both have their formal residence in Rochester, New York. Rochester is close to Canandaigua, where Constellation is based.

Both also own a home in Canandaigua. Including a large home on Lake Canandaigua.

Doe They Own a Private Jet?

The Sands family owns a fleet of private jets. We found a Gulfstream G550 with registration N147SF (Sands Flight?). And we found a Gulfstream G280 with registration N137SF.

The G280 replaced a Dassault Falcon with the same registration. The Dassault Falcon was flying with the Constellation logo. We found 2 Cessna’s Citation 525C, with registration N907SF and N207CJ.

We also found the registration N347SF, which is not jet linked to an aircraft. So they probably ordered a new jet, and reserved this registration for it.

Yacht Rochade

Rochade was built at Delta Marine in 2011. She can accommodate 10 guests and has a crew of 9. The yacht is powered by 2 MTU diesel engines, which bring her a max speed of 22 knots. Her cruise speed is 13 knots.

Yacht Incognito

Incognita is a Mangusta 165 built in 2016 by Overmarine. The yacht is designed by Stefano Righini. She can accommodate 12 guests and a crew of 9.

Incognito is a fast yacht. She is powered by 4 MTU diesel engines. Which bring her a top speed of 33 knots and a cruise speed of 25 knots.

We believe the Sands family als owns the Mangusta 130 named Incognita. (Or she was recently sold).

Yacht Spectre

Spectre was built at Benetti in 2018. The 69 meter yacht was recently bought from John Staluppi, who commissioned the yacht.

She can accommodate 12 guests and has a crew of 15. They yacht is powered by MTU engines, which bring her a max speed of 21 knots.

Shadow is a support vessel, built by Damen Shipyards. She is the support vessel for Spectre. She is powered by Caterpillar engines, which bring a top speed of 22 knots.

Shadow was listed for sale, asking US$ 19 million.
