CHEFS &
SOMMELIERS

We are not only driven by our love for the vine, but also by our passion for taste and terroir. Sharing our passion with those who strive to promote this legacy is not merely an aspiration; it is a matter of course. As such, we work in close collaboration with chefs and sommeliers: the men and women who possess the talent to showcase our wines at their very best.

We are fully committed to promoting French gastronomy. Having learned to listen to our chefs, we now understand much more about their profession, and invite them to be part of the story of our terroirs. Our wines take pride of place on the dining tables of some of the world’s most celebrated Michelin-starred chefs: Mathieu Vianney, Christophe Roure, Georges Blanc, Emmanuel Renaut, Ronan Kervarrec and Frédéric Vardon to name but a few.

We always look to add value through key commercial operations like Bordeaux à la Carte, receptions, wine dinners, specialised training courses held at our Family Estates, as well as help with creating wine list and POS material.

Castel Sommeliers Cup

Vineyards and wine were here before we were - and will still be here when we have gone. In all modesty, it falls to us to preserve this world of wine, along with the essential skills and expertise it demands. The Castel Young Sommeliers Cup is our way of giving back.

The competition is aimed at the up-and-coming generation of sommeliers, giving tomorrow’s talented professionals the opportunity to progress in their field and earn the recognition of their peers.
