See on Scoop.itPlanet Bordeaux – The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux

Making wine is a family affair at Vignobles Ducourt. At each crucial stage of the winemaking process, you’ll find a Ducourt: Jonathan handles sales; his father and cousin manage the vineyard; his brother is in charge of vinification, blending and bottling; his aunt handles the administrative work and the finances, and his uncle is the company manager.


The Ducourt family is able to work so closely together because they all share the same philosophy, passed down for generations:
