Chanel, a world famous French luxury group, already owns two vineyards in the Bordeaux region (Château Canon – 1er Grand Cru Classé, Saint-Emilion, Chateau Rauzan-Ségla – 2nd Grand Cru Classé, Margaux) just bought St Supéry Estate Vineyards & Winery, Napa Valley. The transaction amount was not disclosed. The sale will be completed later this month.
Robert Skalli states “I am delighted to hand over St. Supery to such a well-regarded company that understands luxury brands and will continue to enhance this special property. I am confident that they will continue my vision of a Napa Valley Chateau, crafting world class estate wines, and will build on that foundation, ever improving quality.”
Focus on the St Supéry Estate Vineyards and Winery’s story
“In the early 1970’s, Robert Mondavi intrigued me with the beautiful varietal wines his winery, and others, were producing in the Napa Valley. It sparked an idea and a love for the uniqueness of this place. I spent the next eight years searching for the ideal property to plant and found our family’s Estate Vineyards in Napa Valley. My vision was to draw on my family’s winemaking history in Europe, incorporate new techniques and philosophies, and establish varietal vineyards and a winery in the best possible location in the Valley. ”
Robert Skalli first purchased over 1530 acres in the Napa Valley in 1982. In 1985 he purchased an additional 52 acres in Rutherford, the heart of Napa Valley where he designed and built the estate winery. The St. Supéry Estate is divided into two vineyards (Dollarhide Estate Vineyard Rutherford Estate Vineyard) and produces about 150,000 cases per year.
St. Supéry has grown into a world-class winery, garnering praise in both domestic and international markets.
St. Supéry Estate Vineyards & Winery is a sustainably farmed, estate winery in Napa Valley, California. St. Supéry Estate specializes in Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, with more than 500 acres of sustainably farmed, Napa Green certified vineyards.
