Huneeus Vintners Acquires Napa Valley’s St. Clement Vineyards From TreasuryNovember 28, 2016
Huneeus Vintners, owners of Quintessa in Napa Valley, have purchased Napa Valley’s St. Clement Vineyards from Treasury Wine Estates (TWE). The sale includes the tasting room, winery and a half-acre estate vineyard, but not the St. Clement brand. The sale price wasn’t disclosed.
The St. Clement purchase gives Huneeus some prime real estate along the tourist-busy Highway 29, as well as a rare opportunity to acquire developed Napa Valley vineyard land and a winery with an existing permit.
Agustin Huneeus Jr. told Wine Spectator that he’s excited to become the steward of this historic property just north of St. Helena. “I think what’s amazing about (St. Clement) is where it is,” he said. “And it has incredible views and it’s one of the oldest wineries in Napa.” He hinted at renovation and suggested the former St. Clement tasting room will reopen by summer 2017, for a yet-to-be-named venture.
