Crimson Wine Group has purchased more than 100 acres of vineyard in Walla Walla Valley, Washington state. 

The acquisition was made through its Seven Hills Winery, which Crimson bought at the start of the year. The deal includes "historic old blocks" of Seven Hills vineyard, the company said. 

The purchase includes 109 plantable acres, including 21 acres of Seven Hills vineyard old blocks. The old blocks, planted in 1980, comprise Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The acquisition also includes 14 acres in The Rocks District appellation, which is known for Syrah. 

Seven Hills sources fruit from several Northwest vineyard sites, including McClellan Estate Vineyard in Walla Walla Valley and Ciel du Cheval and Klipsun on Red Mountain. 

Financial details behind the transaction were not disclosed. 

Napa-based Crimson already has operations in California, Oregon and Washington.
