Schottenstein Family acquires Mayacamas Vineyards
Ohio’s Schottenstein family has become the sole owner of the Napa Valley's Mayacamas Vineyards.
Schottensteins is now proprietor of both the Mayacamas Vineyards estate and brand.
Ohio-based entrepreneur Jay Schottenstein said: "This represents an exciting and happy new chapter for Mayacamas Vineyards.
"Since 2013, our family has been committed to the long-term stewardship of this property, and assuming 100% ownership assures the continuity of our vision and the preservation of this historic estate."
Since 2013, the 50-acre vineyard has been replanted, organic farming has been introduced, and the winemaking facility has been upgraded.
Under the Schottenstein family's ownership, the Mayacamas Vineyard team will remain with the company. Completion of the acquisition has seen inclusion of Mayacamas Vineyards winemaker Andy Erickson and Phil Coturri into the Schottenstein team.
Erickson said: "The last few years at Mayacamas have been about connecting the past, present, and future, as well as to preserving the important traditions of previous generations while continuing to move forward.
"I'm thankful for the Schottenstein's commitment to this special place and look forward to continuing its history of farming and fine winemaking."
