Moraga Vineyards in Bel-Air is for sale if you happen to have $29.5 million… (Surterre Properties and…)

A new story in the March 8 issue of the Hollywood Reporter floats the idea that News Corp. Chairman and Chief Executive Rupert Murdoch may be interested in buying Moraga Vineyards, the 13-acre Bel-Air estate now for sale at close to $30 million. 

The key attraction for the media mogul is “the fully functioning and staffed namesake winery, developed beginning in the late 1970s by current owner Tom Jones, the former CEO of aerospace giant Northrop. It produces 1,500 cases of vino a year out of a 2,300-square-foot on-site facility ($4 million worth of inventory will be included in the sale).”

Hmm. The Los Angeles Times or Moraga Vineyards? Which will he buy? One? Neither? Or will he go on a shopping spree and spring for both?

Maybe you could swipe the vineyard if you happen to have $29.5 million to spend.
