New owners for Clarksburg Wine Company

Clarksburg Wine Company, a custom crush facility in the Sacramento Delta, has announced an ownership change. John Carvalho Jr. of Carvalho Family Wines, who doubled as the managing director of Clarksburg Wine Company, has stepped aside from Clarksburg Wine Company. Majority interest in the facility has been purchased by an investment group led by John Beckman. His group also owns the Old Sugar Mill, a Clarksburg wine tourism attraction that hosts tasting rooms for Todd Taylor Wines, Heringer Estates, Carvalho Family Winery and three other wineries.

"Within the wine industry it has been a well-kept secret for decades that the vineyards of the Clarksburg appellation are the source of some of the highest quality and highest value fruit in California," said Beckman in a statement. "The same cooling bay breezes that influence the southern Sonoma and Napa regions moderate the temperatures in the Clarksburg region."
