The Salm-Salm (Nahe) and Castell (Franconia) families will become co-owners of the sparkling wine producer Schloss Vaux in Eltville (Rheingau). The former sales manager Christoph Graf will take over the position as managing director. This was announced by the company. According to the announcement, Nikolaus Graf von Plettenberg will retire after 23 years at Schloss Vaux. The Salm-Salm and Castell families will participate in the company as anchor shareholders. They thus take over a considerable share and are involved in important decisions.
The long-time VDP chairman and winery owner Michael Prinz zu Salm-Salm has already been acting as chairman of the supervisory board for several years. Georg Castell is a lawyer and entrepreneur. He grew up in the Franconian town of Castell with the VDP wine estate Fürstlich Castell'sches Domänenamt, which is run by his brother Ferdinand Fürst zu Castell-Castell. The new managing director, Christoph Graf, has been working at Vaux for eight years and was previously managing partner at the Reichsrat von Buhl winery.
