Foley Family Wines has acquired the fast-growing Acrobat brand from Oregon-based King Estate for an undisclosed sum.

Retailing at $13 to $20, Acrobat's production was up 10 percent in 2017, to 156,000 cases made, according to Impact Databank, a sister publication of Wine Spectator. The majority of Acrobat’s volume comes from its Pinot Gris, although Pinot Noir is a close second. The lineup also includes a rosé of Pinot Noir and a Chardonnay.

“The addition of the Acrobat brand addresses the strategy of expanding our offerings from the emerging and rapidly growing region of Oregon,” Foley Family Wines president Hugh Reimers told Shanken News Daily, another sister publication of Wine Spectator.

Foley Family Wines’ key brands include Chalk Hill, Chalone, Kuleto, Sebastiani, Foley Johnson, and Two Sisters, among others. For more on the Acrobat deal, visit Shanken News Daily.
