Jacques' Wine Depot

Jacques Wein-Depot The origin of the wine trading company dates back to 1974, when the Frenchman Jacques Héon and the German Olaf Müller-Soppart opened their first shop in Düsseldorf. Wines from France were offered there, which were less sweet than the then preferred taste. The wines could be tasted by customers free of charge. At that time, this was only possible at Ab Hof-Kauf, which was a sales advantage given the mobility by own cars, which was not yet pronounced at that time. The wines came directly from the wholesale or from the winegrower. In 1980 the founders withdrew. In 1983 the company was taken over by Horten AG, later a part of Kaufhof Holding (Metro) and finally in 1998 it came into possession of the German wine trading group Hawesko Holding AG.
