About the Company

For more than four decades, Duckhorn Wine Company has helped set the standard for American fine wines. What started as a single vineyard in Napa Valley has grown to include 600 acres of estate vineyards across California and Washington, four winemaking facilities, and three visitor centers. With a pioneering spirit and unwavering commitment to quality, Duckhorn’s six luxury wine brands focus on optimal grape selection and innovative winemaking techniques, resulting in a premium product, from vine to wine.

Our Partnership

We had been evaluating a number of opportunities across the luxury wine segment. With its world-class estate program and respected portfolio of brands, including Duckhorn Vineyards, Paraduxx, Goldeneye, Migration, Decoy, and Canvasback, Duckhorn Wine Company was especially appealing to us. We were fortunate to develop a strong relationship with its management team during the transaction process, which led to a shared desire to partner and grow the business together. Our investment was completed in October 2016.

Strategic Focus

As a partner to Duckhorn management, a best-in-class team that has delivered incredible results, we are focused on using our consumer expertise to support several aspects of their business. We are evaluating M&A opportunities, looking to expand product distribution, investing in sales and marketing, and identifying and growing specific varietals that are less represented in Duckhorn’s current portfolio.

Looking Ahead

“TSG recognizes and values how unique we are in the North American wine industry and is committed to preserving the strong culture that defines us. At the same time, we share an exciting vision for our company’s future. By combining their consumer expertise and global reach with our luxury wine market proficiency and relentless focus on quality, we can ensure that our next 40 years will be as exceptional as our first four decades.”
