Involvement in Charlottesville

Trump's involvement in the Charlottesville area involves his 2011 purchase of Kluge Estate Winery and Vineyards, now known as Trump Winery. He bought the property after Patricia Kluge's estate fell on hard times.[1] In addition to the winery, Trump has also laid claim to Kluge's onetime mansion, Albemarle House, based on the right of first refusal clause placed in the deed to the house when Patricia Kluge won the house in her divorce from John Kluge. The clause stipulated that whoever owned the property surrounding the house at the time of the house's sale could purchase the house by matching the highest bid. In August 2012, Judge Norman K. Moon rejected Trump Virginia Acquisition's claim to the house, saying that Trump and Bank of America's dual ownership of the property nullified the clause. Trump has filed an appeal of the decision.[2]
