Constellation Brands Prevails in To Kalon Dispute

Another battle has broken out over who can use the name of Napa Valley’s most famous vineyard, To Kalon. The Vineyard House, a winery owned by Jeremy Nickel, son of the late Far Niente proprietor Gil Nickel, filed suit against Constellation Brands last week, claiming that a Constellation subsidiary, Robert Mondavi Corporation, fraudulently obtained a trademark of To Kalon and that Constellation has marketed it deceptively.
