I knew it! I knew it! Family Blocked Gruet’s Bid to Buy CapRock Winery in Texas (Maybe)

In a story run on Lubock Online (AVALANCHE-JOURNAL) today, they contend that battling siblings may have been a factor in an Albuquerque wine maker Laurent Gruet’s failure to follow through on a $6.5 million bid to buy CapRock Winery last summer.See details at:

Attorneys for the winery’s bankruptcy trustee amended a lawsuit filed five months ago against Laurent Gruet and his family vineyard and winemaking operations, seeking at least $4 million in compensation after Gruet couldn’t come up with the money to buy Lubbock’s CapRock Winery.

More to come on this story before it’s all over….I’m sure!

The native spirit strikes again. Actually, this time it looks like he has his index finger raised in the direction of Laurent!
