Latest on Woodside Vineyards sale

The February edition of the Woodside Vineyards newsletter confirms that Bob Mullen has all but completed the sale of his share of the company to Buff Giurlani and Dick Burns, owners of AutoVino, a custom car and wine storage facility based on Constitution Drive in Menlo Park. Brian Caselden will continue as a partner and as winemaker; Bob will continue to be active as a consultant.

The new winery is expected to be completed in good time for the 2009 harvest, and will be open to the public on the Memorial day weekend. The Kings Mountain property had already been sold to a different owner last year, though it is understood that Woodside will continue to manage and make wine from those vineyards.
