Trošt wine cellar is a small estate in the middle of Vipava Valley – in the South-West of Slovenia, next to the Italian border. The valley is known for its unique climate combining Mediterranean and pre-Alpine influences: unpredictable weather conditions with a lot of rain, plenty of sun and quite many of windy days. The typical local wind Burja provides for the unique character of the local wine, based on freshness and fruitiness. The wine cellar is located in the valley below the slopes south of Sveti Križ (Saint Cross), a historical mediaeval town. There are 10 ha of vineyards on the property and 50 000 bottles are produced every year.
Chateau des Mille Anges, Bordeaux, France
Château des Mille Anges is Ms. Heather van Ekris' dream come true. The mansion is named after the area of Milange, where the sisters of the Assumption Monastery cared for minors until the First World War, when the monastery was destroyed. Near it in the nineteenth century was restored the church of the village of Saint-Germain de Grave in neo-Roman style, with its square clock tower and its ancient paintings. Next to the church is the Château des Mille Anges.
Xavier Milhade, Négociant de Bordeaux
This family story began in 1938 with Damase Milhade, who moved to Château Recougne to cultivate vines, make wine and organise their sale himself. In 1947, his son Jean joined his father to continue to expand the company. Having passed his oenology degree at Bordeaux University, Hélène and Jean’s son Xavier soon found his place in the family company. The new generation represented by Xavier and Agnès’ children, Marc and Elodie, have carried on the work and now run all the production and sales aspects of the family estates and the wine trading business.
Domaine Vallot, the Rhone valley, France
Since 1902 Domaine Vallot is owned by the Vallot family and the tradition continues for five generations. François Vallot has been the head of the cellar since July 1976 and his daughter Anaïs Vallot took over in 2013. The exceptional climate and the passion of François Vallot allowed the certification of the vineyard in Organic Agriculture in 2003 – an already established practice in its wines for years. And in 2007 it got its Demeter biodynamic certification.
