Margareth Henriquez, current President of the prestigious Maison de Champagne Krug since 2009 and creator of the successes of recent years, has also been nominated President of The Moët Hennessy Wine Division, replacing Jean-Guillaume Prats, who has decided to devote herself to new interests outside the Moët Hennessy world.
Margareth Henriquez will play the new role alongside her current position as President of Krug. Margareth Henriquez joined Moët Hennessy in 2001 as CEO of Bodegas Chandon in Argentina, a position she held for seven years. She was named President of Krug in 2009 and successfully transformed the brand,
making it one of the most prestigious Maison in the world of Champagne.
The appointment will be effective from 1 January 2018.
Krug was the first and only Maison de Champagne to create Cuvée de Prestige year after year, since its inception. The Maison was founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, an idealist with an unconventional spirit, with a philosophy of life that did not allow compromises: his dream became that of offering the best of Champagne year after year regardless of the climatic variations of the period. The deep attention to the character of the vineyard, respect for the individuality of each plot and its wines, as well as the creation of a large cellar of reserve wines of many different years, allowed Joseph Krug to realize his dream.
The Moët Hennessy Wine Division consists of eight wineries, from Spain to New Zealand, from Australia to Argentina, from China to California. Eight jewels that together form the fine wine division of The Moët Hennessy, within the LVHM group: Cloudy Bay, Cape Mentelle, Terrazas de los Andes, Cheval des Andes, Bodega Numanthia, Ao Yun, Smoke Tree, Newton.
Diverse landscapes and latitudes, different terroir, cultivated vines and tradition behind each property, but with the pursuit of perfection, the pleasure for discovery and attention to the environment to firmly unite local businesses to the four corners of the earth
