As a viticulturist, winemaker and maturation specialist, the GCF Group is always tuned in to its customers and partners, offering much appreciated wines and spirits and exclusive services that are unanimously acclaimed.
Throughout the delicate journey involved in producing a great wine, our teams work together to pool their know-how and techniques, from working the land and the vines, to packaging and logistics, not forgetting winemaking and the maturation process.
Every year, more than 1,500,000 hl of wine are produced for the group exclusively on our domains and estates, or by French wine-growers working under multi-annual contracts within an ongoing, sustainable framework. We work in close cooperation with more than 30 partner cooperative wine-cellars and hundreds of viticulturists.
It is this strategy that has propelled the GCF Group to rank as the leading privately-owned winemaker in France.
As a privileged partner of wine-growers in the great wine-producing regions of France, the GCF Group heads committed, demanding and competent teams in each of its terroirs. Men and women who understand the challenges of each wine-growing region and whose heartfelt aim is to enhance the region’s typicality and know-how. Our winemaking, maturation, bottling and warehousing centres are at the cutting edge of technology. Our involvement in the wine business spans from A to Z.
The GCF Group covers all the trades in the industry and also the speciality wines for which the regions are so justly famous and proud: Vin Jaune and Vin de Paille (literally “straw wine”) in the Jura; the famous Vendanges Tardives (late harvest) and Grands Crus (vintage) wine of Alsace: gems from the Loire and the terroirs around Bordeaux with their prestigious châteaux. These are just some of the treasures demonstrating the wealth and renown of the French heritage.
Backed by its strong roots in regions such as Jura, Loire and Alsace, the GCF Group has risen to rank as the top French producer using traditional methods, excluding champagne. Its sparkling Crémants from Alsace, Bordeaux, Jura and Loire are regular award-winners on the international scene.
