Frederick Wildman and Sons, Ltd., is proud to announce its appointment as national importer for famed Rhône producer and grower, Château Mont-Redon.
"We are thrilled to welcome the Abeille and Fabre families and their iconic and beloved Chateau Mont-Redon to our family and company. Château Mont-Redon is one of the world's great estates. The estate's Côtes du Rhône, Lirac and Châteauneuf-du-Pape bring depth and prestige to our Rhone offerings and perfectly complement our larger French portfolio"
Château Mont-Redon has been in the Abeille and Fabre families for four generations. The third generation, Jean Abeille and Didier Fabre, together with the fourth generation, Pierre Fabre (winemaker) and Yann Abeille (vineyard manager), are ready to continue the work at the domaine. Patrick Abeille, sales and administrative manager for the French market make it an 'affaire de famille'.
Jerome Abeille, Commercial director for Mont-Redon, added: “we have fostered a recent close connection with Wildman and are excited in re-energize our brand in the United States and becoming a natural addition to the family-owned portfolio Wildman is known for.”
Château Mont-Redon owns 100 hectares of the most perfectly-sited vineyards in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. More than half of their vineyards are planted on the highest plateaus of the appellation—500 feet high. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre grown in pebbly red soil, produce wines that are generous, powerful, tannic and concentrated. Thirteen grape varieties (white and red) can be used to make a Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine and Château Mont-Redon cultivates and vinify all thirteen.
The full line of Château Mont-Redon wines is available through Wildman’s network of distributors throughout the US.
