Tutiac co-operative brings back Eric Henaux as managing director in a bid to ramp-up growth

Friday January 13 2017 by Vitisphere

Eric Henaux is back in the saddle at the Vignerons de Tutiac co-operative in Gironde. Managing director from 2008 to 2013, he takes over from Etienne Kressmann who had replaced him until last September. “Called back to energise the group’s development”, Eric Henaux has an extremely ambitious roadmap to follow. His first mission will be to ensure a 25% extension of the co-operative’s area under vine. By 2020, Vignerons de Tutiac is hoping to grow from 4,000 to 5,000 hectares through both new membership and an extension of acreage belonging to existing members. To support its growth strategy, the co-operative has recruited Flavie Grenon and has set up a dedicated website called ‘Installation Vignerons Tutiac’. Tutiac currently uses four wineries – Civrac, Générac, Marcillac and Périssac – and its 450 member growers produce the equivalent of 30 million bottles a year, 58% labelled AOC Bordeaux, 28% AOC Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux and 9% Côtes de Bourg. Its turnover last year reached 65 million euros.
