was expected to almost double this year, with overall wine production up 16% compared with 2021.

“The merger of Maisons & Domaines Henriot and Artémis Domaines is a wonderful opportunity to bring together the treasures of our wine heritage under the same banner,” said Francois Pinault in a statement.
