Last week, Adam and Dianna Lee signed a deal selling Siduri, which produces 20,000 cases of California Pinot Noir a year, and Novy, a 5,000-case brand, to Jackson Family Wines—which owns more than two dozen wineries. Neither side will talk price, but based on other recent deals, we're talking tens of millions of dollars.
Some days, it feels like there are no small wineries left in California. Of course that's not true, but I'm often editing news of a larger wine company swallowing a smaller one.

Martin Foradori, proprietor of J. Hofstätter in Italy's Alto Adige region makes outstanding Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Gewürztraminer from his Vigna S. Michele, Vigna S. Urbano and Kolbenhof crus, respectively. However, he has always dreamed of making great Riesling.

Acquiring vineyards in Burgundy is no small feat. It can be even more difficult if you are an outsider. American businessman Mark O'Connell started Domaine Clos de la Chapelle (DCC) in 2011, with the help of Pierre Meurgey, then president of Beaune négociant Champy and attorney Philippe Remoissenet.
The three purchased the Louis Boillot estate, encompassing 3.1 acres in Volnay and Pommard. Over the past year, O'Connell and Meurgey have purchased additional vineyards and inked deals on leases to bring DCC to a total of 10 acres, all premiers or grands crus.
