CHÂTEAU BARRAIL TAPON

The Tapon family has been based in Saint-Émilion for 17 generations as winegrowers! In 1999, after business studies and a training at the Bordeaux Faculty of Oenology, I naturally found my place in the family estate, that has always been led in organic farming, with my parents Raymond and Dédée Tapon. In 2001, my husband Jean-Christophe Renaut joined me in the vineyard leaving his Parisian sommelier job. We work with 22 hectares of vines today, located in the terroirs of Montagne Saint-Émilion. Since 2011, our wines are organic farming certified and we strive to maintain our vineyard in a natural environment: between earth, animals and stars.
