The celebrated Gerard Depardieu is an avid wine connoisseur and has been involved in the business since 1979, when he purchased vineyards in Nuit-St-Georges and later, Condrieu (the latter now owned by E. Guigal). In 1989, he purchased Château de Tigné is a 13th century wine estate in the town of the same name, which lies between Angers and Saumur, France. The estate and its glorious, battle-scarred castle is the sight of the successful Château de Tigné winery. The current cellarmaster is Philippe Polleau, who works in close consultation with Depardieu, who gives final approval on the wines before release. 
 
In 2005, he founded L’Esprit de la Fontaine in the Languedoc-Roussillon with partners Laurent Vidal, winemaker of Mas Conscience; Laurent Odiot, chef of his La Fontaine Gaillon restaurant; Philippe Salasc of Château Grès St-Paul and good friend Jean-Philippe Servière.
