Les Grands Chais de France was founded by Joseph Helfrich in 1979.
The GCF Group is the privileged partner of wine-growers in the great wine-producing regions of France and a viticulturist and maturation specialist at the head of over 2,000 ha of vineyards. In just one generation, we have become a major stakeholder in Alsace, Jura, Diois, Languedoc, the region of Bordeaux, Val de Loire and now in Burgundy. Today we are the leading privately-owned winemaker in France.
The GCF Group has raised the stakes in the wine and spirits business.
Ever aware of market trends, we have developed offers under well-known brands that are greatly appreciated by consumers. This is why J.P. CHENET has become the bestselling French brand of wine worldwide.
