Jackson Family Wines buys Oregon winery

Jackson Family Wines has bought its first winery in Oregon, expanding its presence in the Willamette Valley just months after it acquired nearly 300 acres of vineyards in the state.

The Santa Rosa company bought Sol?a Estate, a 15,000-case winery in the Yamhill-Carlton district with 35 acres of vineyards.

Financial terms were not disclosed. The Sol?a Estate brand was not part of the deal.

"In order to fulfill our vision for creating world-class pinot noir from the Willamette Valley, we need a winery capable of producing artisan wines," Hugh Reimers, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Jackson Family Wines, said in a statement.

Sol?a Estate, owned by Laurent Montalieu and Danielle Andrus Montalieu, will move its production to a different facility.

Jackson Family Wines bought Zena Crown, an 80-acre vineyard in the Willamette Valley and Gran Moraine, a 200-acre vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton district, this spring.
