WinePress Publishing has closed its doors. Operating in Christian custom publishing since 1991, WinePress is owned by Sound Doctrine.

Current ownership of the Enumclaw, Wash.-based self-publishing company has had an ongoing and multifaceted dispute with the company’s co-founder Athena Dean, which apparently was alluded to in the statement on the company’s website. It reads in part:

“It is with great sadness that we announce the winding down of operations at WinePress Publishing. We’ve enjoyed a long and prosperous twenty years in the Christian Publishing Industry, but due to circumstances outside of our control, this time has come to an end. Over the last few years, WinePress Publishing has been the target of a continuing onslaught of destructive lies and gossip, which has finally destroyed the company. Nevertheless, we are dedicated to making sure our authors have the information and resources they need to keep their books in the marketplace.”

WinePress partnered with authors for services, including production, design, video, multimedia, Internet, publicity, promotions, warehousing, fulfillment and distribution.

The WinePress team also offered “heartfelt gratitude” to those the team had served, including authors, editors and printers.

WinePress is a member of CBA and a small press member of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.
