Spotlight on Francois Pinault’s Wineries

French billionaire businessman Francois Pinault, the majority shareholder and honorary chairman of the retail giant Kering, best known for its fashion brands such as Gucci and Balenciaga, also owns an enviable roster of some of the world’s best wineries.

  1. Château Latour 

Set in the heart of the Médoc region of France, within the famed Pauillac AOC area, the world-famous Château Latour has been rated “Premier Cru Classé” since 1855. The estate of 222 acres benefits from an exceptional location, by the Gironde estuary. Backed by Artémis, the vineyard constantly pursues excellence to keep on producing one of the world’s very best red wines.

  1. Eisele Vineyard

The Eisele Vineyard, located in the Napa Valley, was bought by Artémis in 2013.

Eisele Vineyard is the gem of this 38-acre estate, producing one of the best wines in the Napa Valley. The exceptional land in Calistoga at the foot of the Palisades Mountains is entirely cultivated using the principles of biodynamic agriculture.

  1. Domaine d’Eugénie

The Domaine d’Eugénie vineyard was born out of the acquisition of Domaine René Engel by the Artémis group in 2006. It is located in Vosne-Romanée, in the heart of Burgundy’s Côte-de-Nuits vineyards, which are spread over 16 acres and produces six different red wines.

  1. Château-Grillet

Château-Grillet was bought by Artémis in 2011. The Château Grillet vineyards are in the Rhône Valley, close to the Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie vineyard. The 9-acre domain has been producing an exceptional white wine from Viognier grape variety for centuries and was granted its very own AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) in 1936. The vineyard is one of the very rare French monopolies and also one of the smallest AOCs.

  1. Château Siaurac

The Artémis Group acquired a stake in Château Siaurac in 2014. The estate comprises three outstanding vineyards on Bordeaux’s Right Bank: Château Vray Croix de Gay on the gravel plateau of Pomerol, Château le Prieuré on the limestone plateau and the south-facing slopes of Saint-Émilion, and Château Siaurac on the outer limits of the Pomerol plateau in Néac.
