Bank Charges Barrel Stop “Incompetently Managed,” Urges Trustee & Asset Sales

Mechanics Bank, which holds more than $3.6 million of first-priority promissory notes for the bankrupt Barrel Stop/Dominari Winery, has charged that:

  • The debtor is incompetently managed,
  • The only viable alternative is a sale of the company’s assets and,
  • A trustee must be appointed because the current owners have a conflict of interest.

No response has been filed yet on behalf of Barrel Stop/Dominari. The company had been given a January 15 deadline by the court to present a plan for emerging from bankruptcy or face Chapter 7 liquidation. That deadline was extended to March 30.
