Dennis Murphy Acquires Shares in Seven Hills Vineyard

Dennis Murphy, Owner/Winemaker at Caprio Cellars, acquired the ownership interest of TIAA/Nuveen/PCP Partners and the Leonetti/Figgins Family in the Seven Hills Vineyard, one of Walla Walla's most historic vineyards. The transaction includes the SeVein Vineyards.

Murphy is also CEO of Murphy Homes, a Pacific Northwest homebuilder.

“If you track everything Dennis has done, he’s slowly built his way into the wine industry in a really positive and respectful way,” Marty Clubb, owner of L’Ecole Nº 41 Winery, told Great Northwest Wine. “He’s proven his value to the Walla Walla Valley with his winery, and he’s done a great job with his estate vineyards.

“Both Seven Hills Vineyard and SeVein are industry leaders in viticulture with their innovative technology and vineyard development. Their commitment to world-class vineyards and their unique mix of wine industry expertise have been instrumental in developing Walla Walla’s rich wine legacy. I look forward to partnering with the Marty Clubb, Norm McKibben and Bob Rupar in this exciting new venture as we continue to build on their successes,” Murphy said.
