Brunton Vineyards Disavows Recent Spam

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 13, 2007 -- Brunton Vineyards Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BVYH) announced today that it is dismayed by the recently discovered campaign of unsolicited "spam" emails mentioning the Company, and is actively seeking the parties who are responsible. Brunton Vineyards, Inc. has lately become aware of bulk spam email that has been sent out without the consent of Brunton Vineyards and is investigating its options for legal recourse for compensatory and/or punitive damages from the responsible parties. The company strongly emphasized that no unsolicited communications has come from the company, nor has the company hired anyone to distribute them. It is the position of Brunton Vineyards that the practice of disseminating unsolicited promotional email correspondence is not only illegal, but a fundamental violation of the integrity of the market system.

According to Brunton Vineyards CEO Geno Brunton, "We are deeply concerned over this recent development, and are taking every possible measure to counteract the illegal email activity. At Brunton Vineyards, we have worked extremely hard to build a strong, healthy and ethically responsible company, and we will not tolerate the unscrupulous efforts of some unnamed individuals attempting to undermine our hard-earned reputation for the sake of their own ulterior, venal motives."
