CHANEL is most famous for its line of clothing, accessories and beauty products, but did you know that the company owns a winery too? Yes, CHANEL acquired a winery in 1994. The winery was founded in 1661 by Pierre de Rauzan in Margaux, France, Château Rauzan-Ségla4.
This year is the 350th anniversary of the vineyard, and CHANEL has decided to honor it in style. CHANEL collaborated with German designer Karl Lagerfeld to create a Grand Cru Classé wine to tie in with their 2009 vintage. Lagerfeld’s iconic drawing style is showcased on the label, making this wine a unique and classic item. The Grand Cru Classé wine will be available for retail in March 2012 for a purchase price of $129 per bottle.
