Re: Suit against Bryant Family alleges falling sales

Uh oh. This may be a spot of trouble for the winery. If there is a whiff of lack of status value in a brand like this it will likely mean more trouble for sales. There has to be a good deal of reputational value built into the price of all cult wines. At least there is that 300m aart collection to ...

The elder Rochioli was on Levi’s podcast and I think he said the very first (varietal) grapes he ever sold was to Dry Creek.
He also said his father was reluctant to pull out the French Colombard vines they sold as bulk wine because in good years they’d yield 10 tons an acre.
