THE WINE OF THE MONTH
Light - Fruity
Château de Minière
She is a little woman, but she leads a double life at top speed. Kathleen Van den Berghe, who trained as a construction engineer, dropped her career in business in 2010 to take up wine making. Together with her husband Sigurd Mareels, she completely renovated the Château de Minière, modernised and extended the wine estate. Located in the Bourgueil PDO, the estate currently has 29 hectares of vines and has been certified organic since 2013.
