I read on François Mauss's European Grand Jury’s website, this number quoted by Rodolphe: in 1988, the revenues for the wine industry was 5 billion francs (less than 800 million euros), and in 2010, 15 billion euros.

It is not small change, considering the jobs it finances and the contribution to the trade balance of our country and our businesses. Regarding Thunevin, the ratio is roughly equivalent, even more surprising for 1988 was the year of we started and I changed my business from restaurateur-wine retailer to wine negotiant, merchant and wholesaler. The revenues of my business jumped considerably after the creation of Valandraud in 1991 and especially in 1997 with the sale of the famous 1995 vintage
