“My family roots date back a thousand years to Burgundy. My grandfather was a winemaker.
Like most French people, wine runs in our blood."
Thanks to this culture and the legacy of this way of life, we consider wine as part of our life. Our greatest pleasure is to make
magnificent selections allowing us to share our wines with as many people as possible. We like to take as a reference this quote from
Henri IV former King of France: "Bonne cuisine et bon vin, c'est le Paradis sur Terre" meaning "Good food and wine is
heaven on Earth.""
Château du Martret is a family-owned négociant and winemaker based in Burgundy, France. The 200-year-old château has been home to our winemaker and his family for almost 20 years. They also have an office in California, where they are developping partnerships with distributors.
