Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs begins deliveries of Art Russe Saint-Emilion Grand Cru to the world-famous Yacht Club de Monaco (Y.C.M.).
In the midst of the yachting season, wines bearing Russian painting reproductions on their labels have appeared on the wine list of the club’s famed «1909» restaurant in Monaco. Members of the Yacht Club de Monaco are offered wines and gift boxes created at the chateau in cooperation with the Art Russe Foundation.
Founded by Prince Rainier in 1953, the Yacht Club de Monaco (Y.C.M.) has 1,200 members from 60 countries, and today plays an important role in the development of yachting sports all over the world. Together with partners such as Rolex, Riva and Hermès, the club embodies a style juxtaposing the pursuit of excellence, pleasure and the joy of life.
Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs is located in the French region of Saint-Emilion. In 2014, the chateau became a launching pad for an ambitious project aiming to create top quality wines and raise awareness of Russian art. Architecture, design, winemaking, technology and modernity – each element of the project celebrates human ingenuity.
According to Bernard d’Alessandri, Secretary General and CEO of the Yacht Club de Monaco, the vineyards of Saint-Emilion are known all over the world for their adherence to traditions, the craftsmanship of local winemakers and the tireless search for perfection. “The indefatigable team of Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs exemplifies the pursuit of the ideal, the courage and thoroughness inherent in mariners and shipbuilders,” said Mr. d’Alessandri.
