The company, which owns Sonoma brands Truett-Hurst, VML, Healdsburg Ranches and Bradford Mountain and bottles private labels for Trader Joe’s Co., Total Wine & More and Safeway Inc. (SWY), more than doubled sales last year to $12.7 million from $5.4 million in 2011, Wine Spectator said. Partners Phil Hurst, Paul and Heath Dolan and Bill Hambrecht, founder of W.R. Hambrecht + Co., are behind the offering, according to Wine Spectator.
