Maison Louis Latour acquires Maison Henry Fessy in Saint-Jean-d’Ardières
Maison Louis Latour announces the acquisition of the Beaujolais producer HENRY FESSY based in St-Jean-d’Ardières. This follows on from that of Simonnet-Febvre in Chablis three years ago and further demonstrates Maison Latour’s continued commitment to greater Burgundy.

These two family companies share the same attachment to their history, their region and the quality of their wines underlined by a strong brand recognition.

Maison Henry Fessy sells 2 million bottles every year and owns 15 ha of vineyards, mainly in the Brouilly appellation. The house will retain its unique identity with Henry remaining in charge of the business. For its part, Maison Latour will open up its world wide export resources and help with a dynamic commercial strategy.
