SALEM, Ore., May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Willamette Valley Vineyards (NASDAQ:WVVI), a leading Oregon producer of Pinot Noir, generated net income of $174,915, or $0.04 cents per share, for the first three months of 2014, down from $296,593, or $0.06 cents per share, for the corresponding prior year period, representing a $121,678 or 41.0% decrease in net income compared to first quarter 2013. 

The Company produced revenues of $2,971,879 and $3,041,559 in first quarters of 2014 and 2013, respectively, a decrease of $69,680 or 2.3%.  The primary reasons for this decrease are decreased sales through distributors of 9.0% partially offset by increased direct sales of 16.0%.  Gross profit margin was 57.9% and 57.8% for the first quarters of 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $1,473,254 and $1,267,958 for the first three months of 2014 and 2013, respectively, an increase of $205,296 or 16.2%.  This increase is primarily the result of increased operating and selling expenses, including staffing, associated with an increased focus on retail sales and the start-up expenses associated with opening the newly remodeled Hospitality Center.

Jim Bernau, Founder and President of the winery, said "We are very excited about having our remodeled Hospitality Center and Barrel Cellar complete.  Now we can begin the work of growing our brand using this great new facility to further increase our customer base."
