At 66 years old, I aspire to taking it easy and my family and I have looked for a partner to take over the vineyards and the Roland Giraud business. The Grands Chais de France expressed their interest and we are still negotiating the terms of the agreement”, confirmed Philippe Giraud, chairman of the family firm Robert Giraud, based in Saint-André-de-Cubzac. Disclosed by the French media V&S News, the transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The sale would strengthen GCF's Bordeaux assets, adding six properties: Domaine de l’Etalon D'Argent (6 hectares in the Bordeaux appellation), Châteaux Haut Fourat (16 hectares in Bordeaux), Le Bocage (18 hectares in Bordeaux Supérieur), Côtes de Rol (3 hectares in Saint-Émilion Grand Cru) and Timberlay (110 hectares in Bordeaux Supérieur). The properties total 153 ha of vines, mainly Terra Vitis certified, except for Château Côtes de Rol.
