Chateau Monlot - Our Story

Welcome to Château Monlot Saint Emilion Grand Cru, a vineyard of 8.5 hectares dedicated to hand-crafting exquisite wines, located in the foothills of Saint Emilion.

Once named “Maison Noble de Capet”, the historical 400-year-old Château was bought by Chinese international film star, Zhao Wei, in December 2011. Coupled with passion and the great opportunity to produce premium quality red wine in France, Zhao Wei has dedicated herself to bringing great success and recognition as one of the most important wineries in the world to Château Monlot’s prestigious labels.

The same passion and dedication to world-class wine making brought us together with celebrated agricultural engineer, Claude Bourguignon, and the former technical director of one of the world’s most famous wineries, Jean-Claude Berrouet.
