June 25, 1997|(Associated Press)

Kendall-Jackson plans a $54-million expansion in the next three years that will include new wineries in Monterey, Napa and Sonoma counties. The sites will include an $18-million winery in the Salinas Valley in Monterey County, another in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley and a third in Napa County. The Salinas Valley winery, to be completed for the 1998 grape harvest, will have the capacity to produce 1.3 million cases of wine per year. The Alexander Valley and Napa sites will be able to make 500,000 each. The Napa site is projected for completion in 1999 and the Sonoma County location in 2000. "These wineries are needed to handle the growth we are experiencing and to give us the ability to process all of our grapes at our own facilities," said Tom Selfridge, senior vice president of production. The Santa Rosa-based winery produces more than 2.5 million cases of wine annually.
