Chateau La Robertie
Winemaker Brigitte Soulier is one of those rare types of winemakers who have devoted every ounce of her soul to her grapes and her wines; passionate would almost be an understatement. She and her husband were living in Paris, raising their children, working nine to five jobs in the late 1990s. Having been born and raised in an agricultural area Brigitte was missing “the nature of her childhood” and was not happy in Paris – she was “suffocating.” In 1999 they purchased a farm and vineyard in the Bergerac region and dedicated their lives to producing wine and Chateau La Robertie was born!
Today Chateau La Robertie is certified organic (since 2011) and produces both whites and reds from the classic Bordeaux varietals; Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Production sizes are very small and Brigitte will only produce her best wines on vintages that merit the quality. The passion and love of the vine that she brings is evident in every bottle of wine you open from Chateau La Robertie.
