Recent Activity in Small Winery Sales

We’ve noticed a lot of activity in winery sales recently.  The list includes Copain, Far Niente, Patz & Hall, MacPhail, and Stryker of Sonoma to name a few.  Not all of the sales include real estate.  The buyers have been various, but one common trait of the sellers has been notable.  The selling wineries have been well-run operations.  These were not distressed wineries.  Not operations looking for a savior.  For any of you small wine operations looking for additional capital, now might be a good time to put the word out.
