Napa Valley's West Coast Wine Partners has agreed a sales and marketing deal with V2 Wine Group for its latest brand acquisitions.

V2 Wine will manage the distribution network for Valley of the Moon Winery and Lake Sonoma Winery brands throughout the US, West Coast Wine said yesterday (12 September). West Coast Wine bought the Californian brands from F Korbel & Bros last month.

“Valley of the Moon and the Lake Sonoma Winery brands are excellent additions to our portfolio,” V2 Wine Group president Dan Leese said. “We look forward to making gains in their recognition and distribution.”

Scott McLeod, formerly of Hollywood director Francis Ford Coppola’s Rubicon Estate, will be consulting winemaker at Valley of the Moon.
