The North County News reports that Lau-Nae Winery in Red Bud recently changed ownership and re-opened Thursday under a new name.

Lau-Nae Winery was started by Mike and Donna Mollet, who sold it to their son, Matt, in 2007. On Jan. 26, Matt sold the ownership to GayLynn and Keven Kruse. GayLynn has worked at the winery for several years.

The winery will now be called Red Bud Winery. Matt Mollett will continue producing Lau-Nae wines, which will be sold at the winery.
