Donald Trump: Host, mogul, presidential candidate...and vintner?
That's right, hold onto your wine glasses folks, but Trump has bought a Virginia vineyard at a foreclosure auction and wants to start producing wines.
Representatives for Trump bought the winery Thursday and Trump is in talks with former owners William Moses and Patricia Kluge about running the operation. News reports said Kluge Estate Winery & Vineyards in Charlottesville was put up for sale by a creditor bank.
"Preliminary estimates indicate the property sold for less than $7.5 million before fees. It was estimated to be worth more than $70 million before the recession. Trump also successfully bid on the winery's trademarks and labels," according to the Associated Press.
