Irish green entrepreneur Dr. Eddie O’Connor has acquired Château Tour des Termes in Saint-Estèphe, one of the leading communes of Bordeaux. He purchased the estate from the Anney family, who have worked on the estate for five generations. O’Connor’s first move was to appoint Julien Brustis as Director General to work with Christophe Anney on a smooth transition.
O’Connor, a wine afficionado, commented “I have always wanted to own a vineyard in Bordeaux, the world’s greatest wine producing area. Building on what has been achieved by Christoph Anney and his forebears we intend to create a sustainable vineyard which copes in the best way possible with global warming”.
O’Connor has been working in the sustainable offshore wind energy sector since developer of offshore wind in the Irish and North Seas since 2003 and Onshore wind in the Irish and North Seas since 2003 and further afield in Chile and the U.S. since 1992. He has dedicated his career to decarbonisation of energy supply using the Supergrid.
