A new wine holding company, Adams Wine Group, has just purchased Adler Fels Winery, the Sonoma County ultra-premium producer, according to Larry Dutra, Adams's president and CEO. The holding company, headquartered in southern California, also owns Vinesse, a direct-to-consumer wine company, and Royal Oaks, a small winery in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Adler Fels is a 300,000 case winery, with three labels - Adler Fels, Alterra and Leaping Lizard. The winery was founded in 1979 by David and Ayn Coleman and is located in the Myacamas Mountains overlooking Santa Rosa.

In a statement, Dutra said: "We are very pleased with this new acquisition which will help us diversify into different links into the supply chain and very happy that David Coleman, a creative, experienced and successful winery executive, will stay on and be involved in the running of Adler Fels winery. Harry Parducci, Adler Fels winemaker, will remain on board as well."

The Adler Fels brand focuses on Fume Blanc, Gewurztraminer and Chardonnay, while the Alterra labels concentrates on mainly two red varietals, Sangiovese, Syrah and a red blend, Melange. The grapes for the wines come from selected vineyard sources in Sonoma County.
