The Moueix family, owner of the famous Petrus in Pomerol, has sold 20% of the vineyard’s capital to Alejandro Santo Domingo, a billionaire of Colombian origin, French economic newspaper Les Echos said Thursday on their website.
The value of the transaction, which was completed more than a year ago, was not disclosed. But some sources said that the 20% stake was sold for €200 million.
The famous estate located in the commune of Pomerol, in the Bordeaux region on the right bank of the Dordogne, forms a complex of 11.5 hectares and would have been valued at more than 1 billion euros.
The purchaser is, most importantly, a shareholder of AB InBev, the world leader in Belgian–Brazilian beer, which acquired its British–South African competitor SABMiller in 2016.
