Change in Ownership at The Wine Club

After reading a posting today on the erobertparker bulletin board that The Wine Club has just changed ownership, I tried to dig up more news in the local papers about it but found nothing. Today, for example, is when the wine section appears in the San Francisco Chronicle, but all I read are the usual soft, fluffy, dumbed-down wine articles. In contrast, the food section on Wednesday is more interesting. You can bet that if a well-known restaurant in the Bay Area is closing, you’ll get the skinny in the food section. Why can’t they run the wine section this way?

The Wine Club has long been one of California’s and the San Francisco Bay Area’s major wine retailers. Unlike most of its competitors, The Wine Club has thrived selling almost wine exclusively
