Arnaud Frederic

Commercial Manager


My name is Arnaud Frederic and I’m the commercial manager of Chateau Gruaud Larose. My passion for wine started in my cradle as I was born on the estate (My father work on the estate for 30 years now). I did my wine education first thanks to my father as I was living on the estate and get the occasion to get strong connection with key players on the field and led me to carry out all the tasks from the vineyard to the winery. I studied business in college and got an MBA in International business from the Dublin Business School. After several internship in wine business, my passion for wine stands out and I decided to travel the world seeking to enhance my knowledge in wine making throughout international work placement in New Zealand along with California. On my way back to France in 2013, I took over the position of export Director of a sparkling wine producer from the south of France (ANTECH - Limoux) and worked for them for two years. Since July 2015, I work for Gruaud Larose as Mr. Merlaut  (Current owner) wanted me to join the team and being the brand ambassador of the estate throughout the globe. I do look forward to sharing my passion of the chateau with you.
