So no one has anything to say about the Saslove family selling out the last of its holdings in its namesake boutique winery?

Well Chaim, I did not hear about this before. I stopped following Saslove and buying their wines when they went kosher. Judging by the rather underwhelming response on this forum they apparently did not build up a very passionate following in their new clientele... .

I do have my own theories as to the reason(s) that lead to the Saslove Family's decision to sell their stake in the winery. With both Barry and Roni leaving their jobs as winemakers, there will certainly be some substantial changes and impact on the wines, including the 2013 vintage as final blends and bottling times will be decided by the new winemaker(s) whose identity hasn't yet been revealed.

Well, Mike, I guess that was my point.

Think they'll need a good winemaker there? I could be persuaded.

Not a bad idea.

There must have been some worth to the business and the goodwill of their name, otherwise it would have folded as opposed to being sold.

So who are the new owners? I emailed Barry, but have received no reply.
