The founders

In the very beginning, there was Charles Schenk, a cooper who notably built this mythical wooden cask of 23.500 liters for the national exposition of 1896 in Geneva. The famous cask still exists and is in excellent condition.
Then came his son, Arnold, a wine merchant whose vision and dynamism will lead the first Schenk company in Rolle to expand quickly and to acquire wineries and estates across Europe.
