AUS: Orlando considers vineyard sale - report

By | 21 April 2006

Pernod Ricard subsidiary Orlando Wines is reportedly in preliminary discussions to sell one of its two Langhorne Creek vineyards in South Australia.

Orlando general manager of viticulture and winemaking, Brett McKinnon, told The Advertiser today (21 April) that selling up was not the only option for the vineyard.

He added: "If a sale does go ahead, Orlando has a commitment to look after its staff. We would retain as many as possible in our other vineyard and secure employment for as many as possible with the new owner if we do sell."

The vineyard contributes to three Orlando wines including Pernod's flagship Jacob's Creek range.
Pernod representatives were unavailable for comment when contacted by just-drinks.
