Wine Spectator: Jackson Family Wines Buys Sonoma’s Copaín

May 17, 2016

Jackson Family Wines is continuing its Pinot Noir buying spree, acquiring the Sonoma winery Copaín, Wine Spectator reports. The sale includes the brand and inventory but no winemaking facilities or vineyards. The purchase price wasn’t disclosed.

Copaín, founded by winemaker Wells Guthrie in 1999, built its reputation with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah, mostly from Mendocino’s Anderson Valley. Price points range from $45-$75 a bottle. Guthrie will remain on board, continuing to make wine at the Copaín facility outside Healdsburg, where he produces about 30,000 cases annually.

The deal comes just a month after Jackson Family purchased Oregon’s well-regarded Penner-Ash Wine Cellars. It bought another Sonoma Pinot Noir house, Siduri, in 2015.
