Groupe Artémis is a holding company with a portfolio of investments in fashion, wine, luxury, art, tourism, publishing, sports, food, and technology. Headquartered in Paris, France, Groupe Artémis was founded by François Pinault in 1992 as a family investment vehicle.[1]


In 1992, the French entrepreneur François Pinault transferred his majority stake in Pinault-Printemps-Redoute (PPR, renamed Kering in 2013) to his new company, Groupe Artémis, created as a family investment vehicle.[2] Throughout the 1990s, he engaged in a series of prestigious acquisitions.

The 1993 Château Latour acquisition was the first of a series under the Artémis Domaines label.[3] Artémis acquired the winery René Engel (Vosne-Romanée, renamed Domaine d'Eugénie) in 2006,[4] the Château Grillet (Condrieu AOC) in 2011,[5] 1/10 of an acre of the Grand Cru Le Montrachet vineyard from Château de Puligny-Montrachet in 2012,[6] the Napa Valley Araujo Estate Wines (Calistoga, renamed Eisele Vineyard) in 2013,[7] and the Clos du Tart in 2017.[8]

Groupe Artemis controls the auction house Christie's since 1998.[9] Artémis bought the news magazine Le Point in 1997,[10] the Stade Rennais F.C. in 1998,[11] the History-focused publisher Tallandier in 1999,[12] the luxury cruise operator Ponant in 2015[13] and the Brittany-Japan fusion Breizh Café. The group launched the tech-focused investment fund Red River West in 2017.[14] Groupe Artémis is an important shareholder in the couture houses Giambattista Valli since 2017[15] and Courrèges since 2018,[16] and in the magazine Point de Vue (royal family news) since 2018.[17]

Groupe Artémis acquired the Palazzo Grassi in Venice in 2005,[18] which reopened in 2006 as the first exhibition site of the Pinault Collection,[19] and the Punta della Dogana, also in Venice, in 2009.[20] Both buildings were renovated and remodeled by the Japanese architect Ando Tadao.[21] In August 2016, the Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo and Groupe Artémis jointly announced the relaunch of Bourse de Commerce, located in Paris, into a Pinault Collection-branded contemporary art museum.[22] The new museum contains 32,000 square feet of exhibition floor remodeled by Tadao Ando. Its opening is planned for Fall 2021.[23]
