San Francisco Chronicle: Korbel is the U.S.’s 12th largest winery with $160 million in annual sales. It’s millionaire owner and impoverished daughter are going to trial next month. Daughter wants $24 million from father. You can’t make this stuff up.
Falcon Crest has nothing on Korbel Champagne Cellars these days. It’s all there: The graying scion of a Sonoma County wine empire throwing his daughter off the ancestral grounds. A seamy sex scandal. Vicious legal fighting over multimillion-dollar fortunes. There’s even a ritzy horse stable with wild zebras trotting around.
