In 1893, our ancestor Charles was a cooper who eventually expanded his barrel business by becoming a wine merchant.

His son, our grandfather Arnold, then developed an international vision and made Schenk a pan-European company with vineyards and wineries in Switzerland, France, Italy and Spain.

Nowadays, the company is still entirely owned by the family and the fourth and fifth generations are actively involved and process every year the crops of 3.500 hectares worldwide.
