Foley Family Wines has continued to extend its presence in California's winelands with the purchase of Ramal East Vineyard.

The company, which bought a majority stake in Lancaster Estate earlier this month, said yesterday (21 November) it has bought 206 acres of mainly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards in Sonoma County. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

The grapes will support Chalk Hill Estate's new Sonoma Coast wines, due for launch next year, Foley owner Bill Foley said.

“With the launch of the new Sonoma Coast tier we needed to make sure the wine-making team had access to a consistent supply of high-quality fruit,” he added.

Foley Family Wines secured an 80% holding in The New Zealand Wine Company in August and in June bought Napa Valley's Sawyer Cellars - including 40 acres of vineyards - for an undisclosed sum.
