Joel Gott Wines Buys Napa Winery

By February 23, 2022Top News

Joel Gott Wines purchased Napa’s historic Edge Hill property from Rudd Estate, announced on Jan. 18. The deal includes 25 acres, 6 of which are planted to a red field blend, as well as a retrofitted three-story stone winery built in 1867, existing inventory and the Edge Hill identity. Gott is partnering with Trinchero Family Estates to make a red wine, as the group has managed Gott’s distribution, sales and marketing since 2009. The Edge Hill property adds to Gott’s vineyard holdings, which include about 200 acres of vines planted in Sonoma and the Sierra Foothills. Located in the western hills of St. Helena, Edge Hill was founded in 1876 and is considered the oldest three-level gravity-fed winery in Napa Valley, predating Greystone Cellars, Far Niente and Inglenook. It was a working winery in the 1800s and a family home post-Prohibition. The purchase price was not disclosed.
