Domaine Alfred Sells! (You Can Call Me Al)

Erle Martin, President & CEO, Crimson Wine Group, just announced that
The Crimson Wine Group has finalized details for the purchase of Domaine Alfred and the historic Chamisal Vineyard in the Edna Valley.

For those who may not know Central Coast wine history, Domaine Alfred's Pinot Noirs (under the guidance of winemaker extraordinaire Mike Sinor), put Domaine Al on the world's wine map. Decanter Magazine rated it as one of the only Pinot's of California worth sipping, among the numerous accolades they collected.

Domaine Alfred's visionary founder, Terry Speizer, was also headed up the effort to bring the case to the U.S. Supreme that resulted in a major victory for all wineries who ship wine within the U.S.

The purchase is scheduled to close Thursday, August 28, 2008.
