Known for his successful real-estate business acumen and ownership of rugby and racing teams, Lorenzetti becomes an equal partner with Chateau d’Issan current owner/operator Emmanuel Cruse.
According to local French newspaper Sud-Ouest, Lorenzetti will be working closely with Emmanual Cruse, who took over operations from his father (Lionel) back in 1998.
The Cruse family has owned and operated the estate since 1945 when it was first purchased by Emmanuel’s grandfather. The grandfather eventually passed ownership down to his sons Lionel and Roland. (it was Roland’s descendents who sold their share to Lorenzetti)
