A FAMILY MATTER :
Ever since it was set up as a buying office in Bordeaux in 1883, Maison Sichel has remained, first and foremost, a family business .
Since that time, seven generations of the Sichel family have succeeded one another at the company’s helm.
Over the years, it has flourished to a trully international dimension.
Today, my brothers Charles, James, Benjamin, David and I, each in his own special field, have undertaken the task of developing the company while remaining faithful to our ancestors’ philosophy, with respect for quality and the authenticity of the different terroirs.
My sons, Alexander and Max joined the company's sales team in September 2012 and September 2014 respectively to make their contribution to the development of the Sichel brand. The future of our family company is assured…
FROM WINE MERCHANT TO WINEMAKER :
A simple acquisitions office at first, then a fully-fledged wine trading company which gradually became involved in production, Maison Sichel has seized every opportunity to expand its field of competency and action. The company has undergone dramatic transformation over the past 50 years, with the purchase of a winemaking facility, construction of a bottling plant, acquisition of two estates as well as a négociant vinificateur, and construction of a safe for Grands Crus.
We want to be directly involved in every part of our business to have control over quality and reliability.
