Boisset Family Estates, Sausalito, Calif., has purchase of Raymond Vineyard & Cellar from Kirin Holdings Co. of Japan. It is Boisset's first winery acquisition in the Napa Valley, and includes all the estate vineyards as well as the winery, hospitality and production facilities.
"We are thrilled to build upon the rich legacy and deep family roots of the Raymond family in Napa Valley, and we look forward to continuing their tradition of family values," said Jean-Charles Boisset, president of Boisset Family Estates. "They have been pioneers in Napa with a great history and fabulous commitment to the region. The family's passion, continuity through five generations, and continued involvement truly excited us, along with their solid reputation for wines with marvelous balance and excellent value. They were an integral part of crafting the phenomenal reputation of the Napa Valley."
Craig Raymond, Raymond vineyard manager, added, "without high quality fruit our winemakers cannot produce great wines. I appreciate the commitment that the Boisset family has made to sustainable, organic, and biodynamic farming practices in the family's vineyards and look forward to collaborating with them in the future."
