The N°1 French wine brand in the world!

Following his artistic and entrepreneurial spirit, in 1984 Joseph Helfrich designed a bottle with a revolutionary shape. He named it Joséphine. It stood out from the crowd with its original curves, slanted neck and generous body. It represented a genuine challenge at the time as a special bottling chain needed to be built for it. The first brand of French wine was born and its name was JP Chenet.

To set itself even further apart from the far too traditional French market, JP Chenet focused its communication on the grape variety rather than the appellation.

The success of our brand is intimately associated with its capacity for innovation. We were the frontrunners of French branded wines and thanks to the hard work of our teams, J.P Chenet is the best-selling French wine in the world. In the 160 countries where it has a presence, the brand conveys the image of a modern French wine adapted to the habits of the markets.
