Azur Associates Advises Savoy Vineyard Sale


June 13, 2023, Napa, Calif.— Napa Valley-based Azur Associates, a leader in comprehensive fine-beverage consulting and mergers and acquisitions advisory, served as the exclusive advisor for Anderson Valley’s iconic Savoy Vineyard and related assets in its recent sale to Donum Estate.

Savoy Vineyard, named “One of the Five California Vineyards You Need to Know” by the Wall Street Journal, includes 52 acres with 43 planted to world-class, organically farmed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the Anderson Valley, a cool-climate appellation in Mendocino County. Known for exceptional quality, Savoy Vineyard is a key vineyard-designate source for renowned Pinot producers, including Failla, Littorai, Peay, and Williams Selyem. 

Pat DeLong, founder and principal of Azur Associates, commented on the transaction, “We were honored to serve as exclusive advisor on the sale of the iconic Savoy Vineyard and related assets. Donum is the ideal steward to usher the world-class Savoy Vineyard into its next chapter of quality.”

Founded in 2001, the Donum Estate built a legacy of single-vineyard, single-appellation Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Northern California, with small lot wines that reflect their site of origin. With the Savoy Vineyard acquisition, Donum adds to their portfolio of distinctive estates in Russian River, Sonoma, and Anderson Valley. Donum achieved the highest level of organic certification as one of the first wineries in Sonoma County to achieve Regenerative Organic Certified® status for all its Estate vineyards. Donum is also California Certified Organic Farming Association (CCOF) certified.
