Vintage Wine Estates, the fast-growing Santa Rosa wine company, announced a deal late Thursday to buy Viansa Winery and Marketplace, located at the southern gateway to Sonoma's Wine Country.
“They have a tremendous hospitality business, and a tremendous draw being so close to San Francisco,” said Pat Roney, president of Vintage Wine Estates.
The deal includes the Viansa winery and brand, its 168-acre property which includes wetlands and 15 acres of vineyards, and the winery's equipment, inventory and customer list, Roney said.
The property had been listed by Sotheby's International Realty for $15 million. The inventory and other aspects of the business were listed by a broker at an additional $10 million, for a total of $25 million, Roney said.
While Roney confirmed the listing price, he did not disclose what his company paid for Viansa, citing confidentiality agreements.
