Duckhorn Wine Company Acquires Calera Wine Company

By September 21, 2017Top News

Duckhorn Wine Company, which includes Duckhorn Vineyards, Goldeneye, Paraduxx, Migration, Decoy and Canvasback, announced in August that it had acquired Calera Wine Company. Founded by Josh Jensen in 1975, Calera played a pivotal role in establishing Pinot Noir as one of North America’s great varietal wines, and helped to establish the Central Coast as a New World wine region. The sale includes the Calera winery, brand, tasting room, estate vineyards, and all inventory and assets. Calera will continue to produce its portfolio of wines at its seven-level, gravity-flow winery in Hollister, California. All key personnel, including Winemaker Mike Waller, will remain with the winery. Jensen will continue to remain involved at Calera, and join the Duckhorn Wine Company Board of Directors.
