Christian Seely and his team at AXA Millésimes have announced the arrival of Diana Berrouet-Garcia as the new technical director of Château Petit-Village (Pomerol).
Holding a diploma in viticulture from the Angers School of Agriculture and a Master’s of Science Vintage, Diana has used her strong technical knowledge over the past six years as technical manager for Château Teynac (Saint Julien) and Château Corconnac (Haut Médoc).
Château Petit-Village has been a part of the AXA Millésimes portfolio since 1989. With a vineyard covering 10.5 hectares in a single plot, Château Petit-Village is set high up on the magnificent Pomerol plateau, on a gravel and clay soils terroir in the heart of the appellation. The vineyard is situated in an ideal location to produce great wines worthy of this exceptional terroir.
The daughter and granddaughter of Spanish winemakers, Diana is interested in gastronomy and travelling, assets that she will put to good use as she represents Château Petit-Village wines at the property, and all over the world.
