After visiting Chile, Alexandra and Cyril not only fell in love with the Colchagua Valley, they also detected the enormous potential of the country to produce premium wines due to its exceptional geographical characteristics.
In the creation of Lapostolle Wines, the family has maintained the same absolute commitment with the quality that has always characterized them. Its aim is as simple as it is ambitious: to create world class wines using the French experience and the magnificent terroirs of Chile.
Under the dedicated vision of Alexandra and Cyril, Lapostolle Wines has been a pioneer in the wine industry in Chile and today its wines continue to elevate the region through the production of premium wines, with a strong emphasis on sustainability.
Today, Lapostolle Wines is recognized throughout the world for its quality and its extraordinary ability to express the Chilean terroir. The company owns 370 hectares in three different vineyards (Casablanca, Cachapoal and Colchagua) and produces a total of 200,000 cases annually. The wines are distributed in more than 60 countries worldwide.
We are excited to welcome Charles de Bournet, President & CEO of the winery, will be joining us at this yearís TWE. Based in Santiago, Chile, de Bournet, the Swiss-born son of Lapostolle Winery and Clos Apalta founders Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle and Cyril de Bournet, spends about 200 days a year traveling outside of Chile.
