HillWineCo: More Bulk Wine Discovered & Up For Grabs

IMPORTANT NOTE: Hill Family Estate as well as William Hill Estate Winery, are not affiliated with, nor owned by the same families as The Hill Wine Company in this and previous bankruptcy articles.

Bankruptcy Trustee Lois I. Brady who is overseeing the Chapter 7 liquidation of Hill Wine Company has signed a deal with Appellation Trading Company to buy approximately 15,000 more gallons of bulk wine that was recently discovered among the bankrupt winery’s chaotic records. The wine is being sold for $3 per gallon.

This follows on the heels of the previous sale to Appellation Trading of about 47,000 gallons of bulk wine at $5 per gallon. See: Hill Wine Debacle: Napa Valley Cab: $2.93/Bottle, $5/Gal for details on that transaction which closed successfully in mid-September.

Wine Sale Subject To Overbids Until Nov. 4

According to the Trustee’s legal filings, the sale to Appellation Trading sale is subject to overbidding at a minimum of $4 per gallon and must adhere to the same terms as the Appellation Trading purchase agreement. Overbids must be received by 5 p.m., Nov. 4, 2014.
