MEDIA RELEASE - Ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LR
Lalique Group acquires the Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey hotel and restaurant and opens The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant - further strengthening its hospitality business
The five-star Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey hotel and restaurant opened its doors in June 2018 and has since operated under the Lalique brand on a licensing basis. More than 400 years old, the château has three suites and ten guest bedrooms as well as a Michelin star restaurant that can seat 40 diners, while the recently opened summer terrace in the courtyard can seat up to 70 guests. The château/restaurant is managed by Michelin-starred chef Jérôme Schilling, previously executive chef at the Villa René Lalique which is also part of the Group. The hotel, which also has a 'Relais & Châteaux' designation, has been furnished and decorated in the Lalique style. Located less than 40 kilometres from Bordeaux, the château - whose Sauternes wine has been classified as a Premier Grand Cru Classé since 1855 - has a wine cellar and a Lalique boutique, attracting visitors from all over the world year after year.
Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey becomes part of Lalique Group
Roger von der Weid, CEO of Lalique Group, stated: "We are pleased that Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey hotel and restaurant now belongs to our Group and welcome its employees to Lalique Group. We look forward to make this château - an impressive symbol of the world of Lalique in the beautiful Bordeaux region - even more successful and renowned. We plan to make greater use of joint initiatives with the Group's other gastronomic establishments, especially in the areas of marketing and communications."

The Group thus now has four gastronomic establishments: Villa René Lalique and Château Hochberg in Wingen-sur-Moder, Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey in Bordeaux, and The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant in Crieff, Scotland. Having had to close last year and this year due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Group's hotel and gastronomic establishments have now reopened and continue to comply with the current protective measures.
Roger von der Weid stated: "With our restaurants and hotels, we want to offer our guests locations where they can experience the Lalique lifestyle and immerse themselves in the world of crystal, gastronomy and hospitality. Our establishments are an excellent brand ambassador for us, through which we can further raise the profile of Lalique."
