ALESSI

Alessi, fondata nel 1921 da Giovanni Alessi, ha sviluppato quella politica di design excellence che l’ha resa elemento di punta del fenomeno delle Fabbriche del Design Italiano a livello internazionale.
Una delle caratteristiche peculiari della Alessi oggi è la capacità di conciliare le esigenze (operative e oggettive) tipiche di una industria con la tendenza (intellettuale e spirituale) a considerarsi più un "laboratorio di ricerca nel campo delle arti applicate" che non una industria in senso canonico. Da qui deriva la sua instancabile attività di ricerca e sperimentazione che l’ha portata, a partire dagli anni ’80, ad aprirsi anche a nuovi materiali e a nuove tecnologie : legno, porcellana e ceramica, plastica, vetro e cristallo, elettricità e elettronica.
La Alessi occupa circa 500 persone. La produzione del core business (cioè degli oggetti prodotti mediante stampaggio a freddo dei metalli) è tuttora realizzata nello stabilimento di Crusinallo e raggiunge circa 7.500 pezzi al giorno. L’esportazione, che rappresenta i due terzi del fatturato, avviene in circa sessanta Paesi.

Château du Tertre

Situé sur une des plus belles et des plus hautes croupes de graves de l’appellation Margaux, le Château du Tertre possède une histoire des plus intéressantes. Ce domaine est né au XVIIIe siècle de la volonté d’un important négociant d’origine irlandaise, Pierre Mitchell, amoureux de la région et de ses vins.

Fondateur de la première verrerie de Bordeaux, cet homme raffiné et novateur y réalisera son rêve, donnant aux lieux un charme et une élégance indéniables.

D’illustres familles s’y succèderont : les de Brezets, les Henri de Vallandé ou encore les Koenigswarter, riches banquiers proches de l’empereur Napoléon III... La qualité de ses vins sera unanimement reconnue lors du classement de 1855 et lui vaudra son titre de Grand Cru Classé de Margaux.

En 1997, Éric Albada Jelgersma en fait l’acquisition et s’emploie depuis, grâce à d’importants investissements et à un savant dosage de tradition et d’innovation, à redonner à Château du Tertre tout son caractère et sa noblesse.

Château Giscours

Giscours est riche de son histoire : une histoire fort ancienne remontant au XIVe siècle. Un donjon défensif surplombait alors une campagne inhospitalière. Mais tout commença véritablement en 1552, date à laquelle Pierre de Lhomme, riche drapier bordelais acheta la maison noble de « Guyscoutz », constitua autour un vaste domaine et planta les toutes premières vignes. L’aventure viticole était en marche.

C’est au XIXe siècle, sous l’impulsion des Promis, des Pescatore et des Cruse notamment, que Giscours se pare de ses plus beaux atours : transformation du château en palais néoclassique, aménagement d’un parc aux essences rares par le paysagiste Eugène Bülher, modernisation des outils de production avec la construction d’immenses bâtiments d’exploitation, dont la célèbre « Ferme Suzanne » ...

En 1995, Éric Albada Jelgersma, homme d’affaires hollandais en reprend l’exploitation et entreprend un méticuleux travail de remise en état du vignoble ainsi que la rénovation des bâtiments pour redonner toute la noblesse qui sied à ce Troisième Grand Cru Classé de 1855.
