After a year of working together with the Trump family to transition her bankrupt winery over to their ownership, Patricia Kluge is leaving the daily operations side of the relationship. This was all part of the plan from the beginning, according to Kluge, and there isn't any rift between them as has been reported. This is the property that Trump bought in a foreclosure sale for $6.2M, which is insanely low since it is over a thousand acres of property. Donald's son, Eric, has taken over the estate and has said previously that they plan to promote the site as a prominent wedding venue in addition to producing wine.
