Dana Sexton Vivier, Portfolio Manager, GI Partners

GI Partners engaged Zepponi & Company in June 2012 to run a structured process for the disposition of a portfolio of luxury vineyard assets that we manage.  I can say with confidence that their level of organization and attention to detail is superb.  Each sale process has been well thought out, with thorough preparation and an exhaustive search for prospective buyers, both inside and outside of the wine industry.  They are well connected and well respected in the business, and we rely on those important traits as we work to march each deal toward a successful close. They excel at all levels of the process, from the high-level deal making to the nitty-gritty diligence follow through, and we have been highly satisfied with our partnership.
