Murdock Grows Closer to L.A.

13 May 2013 |permalink | email article

The media mogul announced via Twitter that he has bought the Moraga estate on the Bel-Air ridge that faces across the 405 freeway at the Getty Center. Curbed LA said back in February that the estate was listed for $29 million, and posted Murdoch’s tweet on Saturday. It’s where Thomas Jones, the former Northrop CEO, has grown grapes on 13 acres and made his Moraga label of Los Angeles wine.@rupertmurdock
About to celebrate buying beautiful small vineyard right in LA. Great wine, Moraga, owned by great Angeleno, Tom Jones, Time cover,1961!

As LAObserved and I have predicted, the sale makes it more certain that Murdock becomes a serious bidder for the Los Angeles Times. The mogul’s only known interest is buying what was once a great newspaper.
