— An established winery in central Kansas is up for sale.

The 20-year-old Smoky Hill Vineyards and Winery is located on 40 acres north of Salina. The Salina Journal reports that bids for the winery and its assets are being auctioned online through most of February.

Norm Jennings and his wife have run the winery since his father, co-founder Steve Jennings, died in 2005. The couple announced last March they planned to sell the operation and embark on a career in lay ministry.

The assets for sale include the intellectual property — the names of the wines and production methods. Jennings told the newspaper about a dozen people are interested in the name brand property.

This is unfortunately a tragedy. Smoky Hill Wines are MUCH better than the other winderies in Kansas, including a prominent one with a store on Mass Street. "The couple announced last March they planned to sell the operation and embark on a career in lay ministry." Parse this and it means = "my church is giving me hassle because I own a winery and sell wines".
