The acquisition expands the premium wines within the Trinchero family of brands.
“We are delighted to bring Mason Cellars into our family, and in doing so add to the breadth and depth of our collection of brands,” says TFE President and COO Bob Torkelson commented, in a press release. “TFE remains committed to diversifying our portfolio in a way that supports our mission to be consumer-driven and consistently offer quality and value.
