ZHAO WEI TO BE ADMITTED INTO THE JURADE DE SAINT EMILION

Chinese Actress and Owner of Château Monlot to Become Member of Ancient Wine Brotherhood

Saint Hippolyte, FRANCE.

Zhao Wei, famous Chinese film star, and owner of Château Monlot will be enthroned into the Jurade of Saint Emilion, on September 16, 2012, after having been invited to join by current councilors of the group.

The Jurade is a brotherhood of wine dating back to 1199 A.D., when the aldermen of Saint Emilion were given governing rights, in exchange for giving England priority to Saint Emilion wines. Now, the Jurade’s main tasks include the promotion of Saint Emilion wines, and the upholding of quality standards to ensure the authenticity of the wines.

This ceremony is part of a weekend of events marking the start of the grape harvests. To kick off the celebrations, there is a recital on Saturday evening, followed by a parade through the village by the current Jurade members (called “Jurat”). Sunday’s festivities include a Catholic mass and the enthroning ceremony where new members, such as Zhao Wei, will be initiated into the group. 

Zhao Wei is thrilled and honored to have been invited to join the Jurade. She feels that the Jurade’s commitment to increase awareness of Saint Emilion wines, while working to preserve the authenticity of the wines coincides perfectly with her goals for Château Monlot.

Zhao Wei will be present at the festivities of the Ban des Vendanges during the weekend of 15th and 16th September.
