Château de Minière
She is a little woman, but she leads a double life at top speed: one week on the outskirts of Brussels, the next in Ingrandes-de-Touraine, in the Loire valley, and then back to the fold. Kathleen Van den Berghe, who trained as a construction engineer, dropped her career in business in 2010 to take up wine making. With her husband Sigurd Mareels, she breathed new life into the Château de Minière, which lies in the PDO Bourgueil. Their 18 hectares of vines are all Cabernet Franc. The vineyard has been certified as organic since 2013.
