Vintage Wine Estates Acquires California's Qupé

November 05, 2018

Santa Rosa-based Vintage Wine Estates has purchased the Qupé wine brand. Founded by Bob Lindquist in 1982, Qupé is known for producing cool-climate Rhône varietals from California's Central Coast, including Syrah, Grenache, Roussanne, and Marsanne ... The purchase includes the brand and inventory, and Lindquist will stay on as consulting winemaker. Qupé was previously owned by Terroir Selections, which acquired it in 2013. V2 Wine Imports, jointly held between Delicato Family Vineyards and Dan and Katy Leese, took on sales and marketing for the brand as part of its partnership with Terroir in April
