FRANCE: Boisset completes Rhône Valley acquisition
Boisset has strengthened its presence in the Rhône Valley with the acquisition of producer and trader Vignobles du Peloux for an undisclosed amount.
The Vaucluse-based family firm produces and markets Rhône Valley and Languedoc-Roussillon wines of which more than half are exported.
Vignobles Peloux boasts state-of-the-art vinification and production facilites and is also equipped with screw-cap bottling and bag-in-box packaging lines.
It also owns an 18 ha estate at Marguerite, in the Gard, which produces 330,000 bottles of pays d'oc wines annually.
The French wines and spirits group acquired Rhone Valley trader Louis Bernard in 1998.
