International Wine Associates Represents Oregon’s The Four Graces In The Sale To Bill Foley

Healdsburg, California – March 31, 2014 – Robert Nicholson of International Wine Associates, the mergers and acquisitions advisory firm that specializes in wine industry transactions, announced today that International Wine Associates served as exclusive advisors to Oregon’s The Four Graces Winery and Vineyard in the sale to Foley Family Wines.

“This is the second transaction in Oregon that International Wine Associates has completed in the last six months” said Nicholson. “Last year Louis Jadot approached us to find them a top quality Oregon vineyard and we found them Resonance Vineyard. With Foley’s arrival in Oregon and interest from other large wine companies Oregon is now attracting the attention of the global wine industry”.

The Four Graces was founded by Ms. Paula Marie Black and Steven L. Black and was established by the Black family in 2003 with the purchase of the Black Family Estate in Dundee and has quickly grown to become one of the most successful Oregon wineries. The winery was named after the founders’ four daughters.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
