Cointreau heiress lists Malibu home for $12.5M
Béatrice Cointreau’s estate has its own vineyard
Updated Saturday, August 19, 2017 at 6:39 p.m.: Liquor heiress Béatrice Cointreau, the great granddaughter of Cointreau liquor founder Edouard Cointreau, listed her own vineyard estate in Malibu for $12.5 million.
The five-acre property, at 5941 Kanan Dume Road, is surrounded by more than 3,000 centennial vines, according to the listing. The main, 6,635-square-foot house has five-bedrooms, six bathrooms and a wine cellar.
Cointreau purchased the estate for just $3.2 million in 2013, following the launch of her own wine label, Admirable Family Vineyards. She then acquired the adjacent lot in 2015 for under $1 million to create her own vineyard.
Sally Forster Jones, Shauna Walters and Meredith Schlosser of John Aaroe Group have the listing. They did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Cointreau, who has been in the winemaking and distillery business for more than 25 years, reportedly splits her time between California and France.
Her liquor pedigree is strong. She’s also a descendent of Rémy Martin, who founded the eponymous cognac brand.
This story has been updated to show the property consists of two adjacent lots.
