In a board meeting held in Mumbai recently, one of India’s best wineries, Grover Zampa Vineyards announced the entry of Edouard Labruyère on its board as an investor. The investment has come through Ravi Viswanathan’s Visvires Capital that already owns a 30% share in Grover Zampa Vineyards Ltd. The Labruyère family owns one of the oldest wineries in the Moulin-a-Vent appellation, north of the famous Beaujolais region.

In 2008, Edouard Labruyère took over the reign of the winery from his father Jean-Pierre Labruyère, the President of Moulin-a-Vent Cru. Apart from Domaine Labruyère, they own Domaine Jacques Prieur in Mersault and Chateau Rouget in Pomerol. Over the years, the winery certainly has grown from strength to strength under Labruyère’s leadership.
