Meet the Maker - Vignobles Bardet
Vignobles Bardet is a small Chateau owned by the Bardet family, located near the Dordogne river, in the Saint-Emilion appellation. Their story begins in 1704 when Mr. Seigneriau, a river boatman, used to transport barrels of wine to the port. As the river trade flourished, he bought vineyards. In the 1920s, Mr Seigneriau's granddaughter, Mathilde Roy, married Henri-Gabriel Bardet who found the first family vineyard, Ch√Ęteau du Val d'Or. In 1962, his son Roger Bardet (father of the current owner, Philippe Bardet), became the owner of Ch√Ęteau Franc Le Maine in 2008. Roger Bardet passed on to his son his passion for growing wine and a deep respect for the state. They seek to reduce the impact of their activities on the environment by adopting practices that protect nature‚Äôs balance.¬†
Ch√Ęteau Roc Meynard, Bordeaux Sup√©rieur, 2018¬†
