Famille Boisset, the French group based in Nuit-Saint-Georges (Burgundy), has merged its portfolio of Languedoc and Provence operations. Fortant, was acquired by the dynamic company in 2011, as part of the Skalli business, along with , Caves St-Pierre, Couleurs du Sud and Fortant de France.
Famille Boisset bought the Moncigale - formerly Les Chais Beaucaire – in Provence, a decade later in March 2021 "in order to strengthen our base in the south and to provide us with new production capacities", as sales manager Sylvie Dubrulle explained to the Meininger publication, WEINWIRTSCHAFT.
The rationale for bringing the operations together is to strengthen the brands and rationalise production, as the Moncigale plant in Beaucaire (Provence) is not working to capacity and Fortant in Sète (Languedoc) lacks bottling facilities. In particular, Famille Boisset wants to strengthen their portfolio in the "highly dynamic rosé market".
