Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, great-granddaughter of the creator of Grand Marnier, is the force behind Lapostolle, spectacular winery overlooking Apalta Vineyards in the Colchagua Valley in Chile. The Marnier Lapostolle family, founders of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier, is famous for producing spirits and liqueurs, but the family has also been involved in winemaking for generations The Chilean chapter of the family was founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994. Now managed by the 7th generation, Charles-Henri de Bournet. Their vineyards in Alpalta are now certified organic and bio, though the wines are not labelled that way, the grapes are certified, not the winery. These wines are very much Chilean terroir and French expertise, the consultant is Michel Rolland, known well in Bordeaux. These are wines that have been seen in NZ before, though not for many years. The top wine Clos Alpalta is not in the latest shipment, it has a different route to market, through Bordeaux. As well as making world glass wines, they also have a 5 star hotel and resort at the winery and make amazing Pisco.
