M. Chapoutier Rhône Valley Wine Dinner
The team at Bartolotta’s Lake Park Bistro is pleased to host an evening highlighting the esteemed French winemaker M. Chapoutier on Thursday, August 25. Joining us for the event will be Martin Garnier, US Brand Ambassador for M. Chapoutier, who will explain the rich history and luscious wines of M. Chapoutier.
The name Chapoutier has been present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. They have been producing wines in the Rhône Valley appellations for more than 200 years, earning them a reputation as one of the premier wine producers in that region. Seven generations later, Michel Chapoutier, a descendant of the founder, took over the family business at the young age of 26 and built the winery into what it is today. Since taking over his family business in 1990, Michel Chapoutier has transformed the winery into the leading Rhône Valley wine producer. He has taken a cutting-edge approach to wine growing by combining modern with tradition. The company’s vineyards are certified biodynamic or are cultivated organically, making M. Chapoutier the largest biodynamic winery in Europe. Michel’s approach to wine growing over the last 30 years has been validated time and time again, as M. Chapoutier is the most awarded winery in the world.
