Etats Unis : la famille Skalli vend St. Supéry Estate Vinyards & Winery à Chanel, Inc.
With the very best for St. Supéry’s future in mind, the Skalli family has agreed to sell St. Supery Estate Vineyards & Winery to Chanel, Inc. a privately held company.
The Skalli family is pleased to announce that it will be selling its Napa Valley winery; St. Supéry Estate vineyards and Winery, to Chanel, Inc. Robert Skalli states "I am delighted to hand over St. Supery to such a well-regarded company that understands luxury brands and will continue to enhance this special property. I am confident that they will continue my vision of a Napa Valley Chateau, crafting world class estate wines, and will build on that foundation, ever improving quality.”
Robert Skalli first purchased over 1530 acres in the Napa Valley in 1982. In 1985 he purchased an additional 52 acres in Rutherford, the heart of Napa Valley where he designed and built the estate winery. St. Supéry has grown into a world-class winery, garnering praise in both domestic and international markets. Owning all of their vineyards and directing every aspect of the grape-growing and winemaking process allows St Supéry to produce only the finest Napa Valley wines.
The sale will be completed later this month. There is no significant change in operations or management anticipated. Demeter Group and Rothschild acted as financial advisors to St Supéry on the transaction.
St. Supéry Estate Vineyards & Winery is a sustainably farmed, estate winery in Napa Valley, California. St. Supéry Estate specializes in Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, with more than 500 acres of sustainably farmed, Napa Green certified vineyards. Its award-winning wines are available from local retailers, at restaurants, at the winery in Rutherford, and online from St. Supéry Estate.
