Foley Family Wines Expands Into Spirits

By June 23, 2023Top News

Foley Family Wines (FFW), the Sonoma Valley-based family-owned wine company, is expanding into the spirits business with the operation of a distillery in Minden, Nevada. The facility includes an American whiskey and white spirits distillery, housed in a 100-year-old creamery, and an American single malt whiskey distillery housed in a 100-year-old flour mill. Both buildings sit on the National Register of Historic Places. The flour mill includes multiple tasting areas and will serve as a guest experience center. Also included in the transaction is the existing inventory of bourbon, single malt whiskey and rye. FFW will produce spirits at the facility from locally sourced grains and the spirits will be available through national wholesale markets and direct-to-consumer channels, including the Minden tasting room. FFW will begin operating the Minden facility immediately and will manage the sales and marketing efforts.
