Blog: Olly WehringPhoto-Journalism – Now, this is more like it

Olly Wehring | 2 March 2011

Every time there's an M&A story to cover, we here on just-drinks like to include a suitable image with our coverage. Maybe a company logo, or a picture of one of the brands involved, or perhaps a snap of the facilities changing hands.

But, thanks have to go to Viña Concha y Toro, which, having acquired Fetzer Vineyards from Brown-Forman yesterday (1 March), sent us this image of its senior executives actually going through the paperwork.

I love this – more of the same from you M&A magnates, please.
