FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fort Lauderdale, FL – March 3, 2017
The Legacy Companies (“Legacy”) has acquired wine and spirit aerator developer Vinturi from Focus Products Group International, LLC (“Focus”). The wine accessories company will be added to Legacy’s housewares group of brands that includes Chef’sChoice, EdgeCraft, Excalibur Dehydrators, Nautilus, Omega Juicers and Blenders, West Bend, Yonanas and Zeroll.
Vinturi debuted its first aerator, the Vinturi Red Wine Aerator, in 2007. The aerator has a patented design that speeds up the breathing process by aerating in the time it takes to pour a glass of wine. The company has grown its wine accessories assortment with a number of other products, including a white wine aerator, the Vinturi Tower, the Vinturi Spirit and more.
“The Vinturi brand represents quality and innovation. It is a dynamic, global category-leading brand that holds patents for useful products,” said Neal Asbury, CEO of The Legacy Companies. “To add another product line to Legacy that combines form and function for an overall improved consumer experience represents our continued commitment to delivering superior and functional products.”
Mr. Asbury continued that this is an exciting time for Legacy, noting there is a potential for more acquisitions in 2017. Vinturi is Legacy’s sixth acquisition since May of 2016.
