Clos LaChance Wines has appointed Matt Read as vineyard manager of CK Vines, a subsidiary of Clos LaChance Wines. The winery has also promoted Kristin Murphy to customer relations manager, broadening her responsibilities at the winery.

"These two appointments complete CK Vines' renewed focus on the "backyard vineyard" business, which is seen as a major growth potential for the winery in 2005 and beyond," a statement said.
 
CK Vines provides installation and maintenance services of small-scale vineyards for homeowners interested in landscaping alternatives on their property. In addition, the company also takes over management of existing vineyards. After each vineyard begins to produce quality fruit, the grapes are purchased from the client for use in Clos LaChance premium wines.

"This partnership between CK Vines' clients and Clos LaChance Wines offers Clos LaChance consistent access to estate quality fruit; clients receive a beautiful vineyard and the many benefits of being a grower of high quality grapes. CK Vines is unique in offering this full range of services," the company said.

Read's experience includes grapevine pathology research at University of California at Davis and work for the California Conservation Corps in the role of crew supervisor.

Murphy is currently director of events for Clos LaChance and will add CK Vines customer relations manager to her scope of responsibilities.

"With more and more homeowners understanding the benefits of a vineyard on their property, we are seeing increased interest for our CK Vines business," said Clos LaChance owner Bill Murphy.

"Having both Matt and Kristin focused on the growth of CK Vines will help the winery reach its potential and build upon our existing winery business," he added.
