With the fnancial support of a small group of enthusiasts from Luxembourg and Belgium, he brought his project to fruition with the construction of the beautiful Grevenmacher winery on the banks of the Moselle River. Having been managed by Jean Bernard-Massard until his death in 1937, the company was subsequently led by the Clasen family.
