Donum Estate, a Carneros pinot noir producer that was bought by a partnership of Danish investors last year, acquired the Nugent Vineyard in Russian River Valley from Joe and Cynthia Nugent.

The 16 acres of pinot noir are located on a level 20-acre property.

"Anne and Joe Nugent have enjoyed a wonderful working relationship through the years that has produced spectacular results," said Trond Fredheim of Winside, Inc., the partnership of Danish investors. "We are delighted that Joe has entrusted ownership of this special site to our winery."
