My wine pick comes from a producer who’s founder is truly a remarkable woman, in business, in character and in elegance. And both Georgia and I have had the opportunity to interview her on a number of occasions, one of our favorite ladies Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle! Of the hugely popular and established liquor Grand Marnier
Not only does she run the family business, she has expanded her family’s empire to Chile. She founded Casa Lapostolle in 1994 and is still out working the wine market while her son Charles holds down the fort at Lapostolle.
As a fan of the signature grape of Chile, Carmenere, I love this full bodied, rich, deep coloured, ripe black fruit red wine with a lasting finish….Super duper value Casa Lapostolle Carmenere 2011.
