Charlottesville winery Trump boasted about owning claims no affiliation
A Charlottesville, Va., winery that President Trump boasted about owning Tuesday says they have no affiliation with him.
During a combative press conference, the president doubled down on claims that both sides were responsible for deadly violence in Charlottesville, where white nationalists held a rally.
As he was leaving the press conference, Trump claimed to be knowledgeable about the town and added that he owned “one of the biggest” wineries in the country there.
But the Trump Winery has a disclaimer on its website that says it is owned by Eric Trump Wine Manufacturing LLC, Mother Jones reported.
“Trump Winery is a registered trade name of Eric Trump Wine Manufacturing LLC, which is not owned, managed or affiliated with Donald J. Trump, The Trump Organization or any of their affiliates,” the disclaimer reads.
Donald Trump bought the winery in 2011, eventually handing control to his son.
