The wine industry is not known for crime. But there are cases where someone takes advantage of the trusting nature of this industry. Ehlers Estate is a St Helena Winery known for their Cabernet Sauvignon and charitable donations to Cardiovascular research.
It came as a surprise to everyone that the former general manager, Daniel Brady Sibert was arrested and accused of embezzlement. On April 26th, four Napa County Sheriffs searched the property of Sibert looking for related information.
Captain John Robertson said that Sibert embezzled more than $100,000 from 2005 to 2006. The amount continues to rise as they uncover more evidence. Sibert also faces charges of grand theft and passing worthless checks.
