Vincor's Latest Purchase (February 19, 2004)

Vincor International, Canada's largest wine producer and the fourth largest in North America, just got a little bigger. They have announced the purchase of a second Australian winery – Amberley Estate, in the Margaret River region of Western Australia. Amberley was established in 1985. Last year Vincor bought another Western Australia winery, Goundrey. Their combined production will make them one of the largest producers in the region.

Vincor will pay A$24.8 million for the shares of Amberley, which has an enterprise value of A$36.2 million.

"Amberley and Goundrey complement each other perfectly,"says Donald Triggs, Vincor's President and CEO. "By completing this acquisition, Vincor will enhance its production and portfolio of fine Western Australian wine brands and greatly increase its sales and distribution capability in the important Oceania region."

Sales volume for Amberley has grown to over 100,000 cases annually, focusing on Margaret River super-premium red and white wines, with a specialty in Chenin Blanc. The winery's business will be integrated with those of Goundrey and managed by Rich Hanen, President of Vincor's Goundrey Wines.

Vincor International Inc. is North America's 4th largest producer and marketer of wines and related products by volume, with leading brands in all segments of the market. The Company has wineries in British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, California, Washington State and New Zealand, and markets wines produced from grapes grown in the Niagara Peninsula of Ontario, the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, the Dunnigan Hills of California, Washington State and vineyards around the world. Vincor's premium brands include Inniskillin, Jackson-Triggs, R. H. Phillips, Toasted Head, EXP, Hogue Cellars, Kim Crawford, Sumac Ridge, Caballero de Chile, Hawthorne Mountain and Sawmill Creek.
