FRANCE: Maison Sichel boosts capacity with winery upgrade
Maison Sichel has completed a EUR2m (US$2.7m) upgrade of its Bordeaux winery that has increased the site's capacity by 25%.
The Bel Air winery can now produce 22,300 hectolitres a year, Maison Sichel said today (16 September). The site, 40km south of Bordeaux, also features a new tasting room and improved staff facilities, the producer and shipper said.
The upgrade, which took two years, gives Maison Sichel the ability “to produce not necessarily more, but better”, said Fabien Laborde, head of wine and vines at Maison Sichel.
In July, The Bordeaux Wine Council (CIVB) appointed a new managing director. Fabien Bova took over from Roland Feredj.
