France’s top 10 richest drinks barons

3. Alain and Gérard Wertheimer

Worth: €21bn
Company: Chanel
Sector: Luxury goods

The brothers behind the House of Chanel, which was co-founded by their grandfather Pierre, the Wertheimers mix high fashion with their love of field sports.

Passionate equestrians they own and operate a thoroughbred stable known as the La Presle Farm in addition to owning Tanner Krolle, a saddler and leather goods manufacturer, and British gunmaker Holland & Holland.

Their wine properties are no less impressive, being centred on two absolute stars of Bordeaux – Rauzan-Ségla in Margaux and Canon in St Emilion, both of which are becoming the apple of many a merchants’ eye for their quality and workable prices en primeur.

In addition, in 2015 they bought the St Supery winery in Rutherford, California.
