"How do you make outstanding wine? The most important thing is to closely observe and be in tune with the soil and the vines, every day, in every season. Thereafter, the greatest of care must be taken in blending wines from each separate grape variety and plot. Thanks to painstaking work, year after year, the winemaker leaves his mark".
Born in Blaye, Marie-Pierre obtained her nursing diploma in Bordeaux in 1981 after working for two years in a hospital in Albertville, in Savoie, and eight years in the Blaye Hospital emergency room. Marie-Pierre then decided to undertake a course in vineyard management. She took over the family estate with her brother, Pierre-Charles, in 1992.
Marie-Pierre will be glad to welcome you to the château, take you around the cellars, and provide a tutored tasting. She is also in charge of packaging, logistics, and organising our participation in trade fairs in France and abroad.
In her rare moments of leisure, Marie-Pierre likes to look after her garden, DYI, and creative activities.
Pierre-Charles was born in Blaye. In 1989, he obtained an advanced technical diploma in oenology in Bordeaux.
He came to work with his parents on the family estate in 1992.
Presently vineyard manager and cellarmaster, Pierre-Charles is in charge of all aspects of winegrowing and winemaking. He is also responsible for international contacts.
Married and the father of 2 children, he spends as much time as he can with his family. His passion? A country... Sweden.
