You’re new to Larose.What’s your background?
My family’s estate grew grapes for Hennessy. Wine has been my life. I studied enology and viticulture in Bordeaux, then made wine there, in California, and in Chile.
What influenced you?
Learning about wine with my father almost as soon as I could walk. He showed me everything all the time.
What brought you to the Okanagan?
I tasted Osoyoos Larose in 2012 with the other Groupe Taillan winemakers and was excited and intrigued. By March I was here!
What impressed you?
The structure, the acidity, the high colour and density-it’s a wine you cannot ignore. I hope I can contribute by uniting traditional winemaking and New World terroir in the best possible way.
