Asian investor Peter Kwok buys another Bordeaux château
Peter Kwok, the Hong Kong businessman regarded as one of the first Asian investors in Bordeaux vineyards, has bought his seventh estate in the region.
Peter Kwok, the Vietnam-born, Hong Kong businessman who bought St Emilion’s Château Haut-Brisson in 1997, has purchased Château le Rey in Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux along with two business partners.
The 12 hectare estate was previously owned by the le Roy family since 2006.
Kwok’s business partners in the purchase are Jean-Christophe Meyrou, who has worked for two years as director for Kwok’s French holding company Vignobles K, and Belgian importer Philippe Lambrecht.
The deal comes less than a month after Alibaba founder and billionaire Jack Ma announced he had bought Château de Sours in Bordeaux.
