News Release: San Antonio Texas Entrepreneurs Purchase CapRock Winery: Jim & Cathy Bodenstedt will Lead Revitalization of One of Texas’ Premier Wineries
Under new ownership, Lubbock based CapRock Winery will expand distribution of its award winning wines.
Lubbock, TX, August 4th, 2010: It was announced today that San Antonio entrepreneurs Jim & Cathy Bodenstedt will purchase Cap*Rock Winery. Mr. And Mrs. Bodenstedt expressed their desire to respect the wine making heritage of CapRock winery while increasing the distribution in Texas and beyond. “I am excited about the opportunity to help elevate CapRock to the highest level of wineries in the United States” said Mr. Bodenstedt, President and CEO of MUY Brands, LLC a San Antonio based company.
CapRock Winery has won over 500 medals and awards for its wine since its beginning in 1991. CapRock wines are available across Texas and in small quantities in Colorado. Mr. and Mrs. Bodenstedt expect to increase distribution in Texas and to eventually put Cap*Rock wines on store shelves across the United States.
They intend to maintain the status quo at the winery, while developing a plan to upgrade the facility. All scheduled events at the winery will proceed as scheduled. This includes public events like the August 28th Harvest Festival.
This purchase comes at an excellent time since the West Texas grape harvest will begin in a matter of weeks. Winery manager Phillip Anderson says “This year’s harvest appears to be the best in years. It will be an opportunity for Cap*Rock to extend its history of fine wine making.”
