US: Napa winery Quixote sold to China's Jinta Vineyards - reports
California winery Quixote has been sold to Chinese firm Jinta Vineyards & Winery, according to local reports.
Quixote, owned by Carl Doumani, includes 28 acres of vines in the Stags Leap district of Napa Valley. Doumani, who acquired the winery in 1971, is understood to have sold Quixote for “more than US$20m”, according to wine-searcher.com.
No-one was available for comment at the company when contacted by just-drinks today (24 July).
Quixote makes Petite Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, with grapes sourced from the company's vineyard between Stag Leaps' Winery and Shafer Vineyards.
The winery was designed by Austrian architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
Privately-held Jinta Vineyards & Winery, which is based in the US, last year acquired Hannah Nicole Vineyards & Winery, in East Contra Costa in northern California last year, according to local reports.
