Boisset buys Skalli (US)
Boisset has continued its recent spending spree with the company’s biggest deal to date: the acquisition of rival French wine giant Skalli. The acquisition of Skalli Wines’ brands, vineyards and facilities in the Languedoc and Rhône Valley comes just a few weeks after Robert Skalli sold the company’s wine interests in Corsica. The sale to Boisset, for an undisclosed sum, does not include St Supéry, the Napa Valley wine estate owned by the Skalli family since the 1980s. But it does include brands such as Caves St-Pierre, Couleurs du Sud and Fortant de France, reports Decanter.
