It’s official: the former Kluge Estate Winery is now Trump Vineyard Estates. Donald Trump this week officially unveiled his new Charlottesville, Va., winery, which he bought last spring for $6 million in a foreclosure sale from glamorous billionaire ex-wife Patricia Kluge, with exactly the rhetoric you’d expect:
“This will be one of the great wineries anywhere in the world,” the New York mogul/reality star proclaimed at a Tuesday evening reception attended by Gov. Bob McDonnell, reports the AP. “Not in this country but anywhere in the world.” The Daily Progress reports Trump is keeping Kluge on staff, putting her and his son Eric in charge of day-to-day operations with plans for possible expansion.
