Turning water into wine!
In the late 1970s, Château de Ferrand changed hands for the only time in its history.
One day in December 1977, Baron Bich – a visionary industrialist who founded the company bearing his name – announced to his family that he was going to ‘turn water into wine’!
There was nothing miraculous about this: he simply sold his shares in a mineral water brand to purchase Château de Ferrand.
A family shareholding
After Baron Bich’s demise, ownership remained in the family.
Today, Ferrand is run by his daughter Pauline Bich Chandon-Moët and her husband Philippe Chandon-Moët.
