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, Château du Val d'Or. In 1962, his son Roger Bardet (father of the current owner, Philippe Bardet), became the owner of Château 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’s balance.
