Vincent Lataste

I was born on my ancestor’s lands, at Château de Lardilley in Cadillac, near Bordeaux. I was brought up with a passion for our red gold and rapidly developed a desire to promote it around the world. I still remember when I was a kid I used to help my Dad with the vineyard. I joined and helped with the land tasks as often as I could. I learned the job with the old employees and they passed on to me the love for the wine and the “terroir”. After my father’s death I took over the family vineyard while I was carrying on my studies at the Oenology College in Bordeaux.

I believe in Bordeaux’s “terroirs”. Research has evidenced now how crucial a good terroir is to producing good ripe grapes. The old people knew it, Bordeaux will always remain Bordeaux.

I believe in environment protection that’s why I have been proud of coming back to respectful production methods Vignobles Vincent Lataste now use organic agriculture technics. We abandoned chemical fertilizers and herbicides. We buy dry material (caps, wooden boxes, labels, bottles) to local suppliers. For our cases production we use wood of the Landes forest. We require labeled printers “ImprimVert” and natural corks.

Proud of my roots and interested in the world I have always wanted to bring out wines. I created some wines of character, generous ones, fruity and gourmet wines.

I travel to introduce them and to promote them, firstly to European markets and then to Asian and American.

Today, more than ever I am happy to share my wines. Come over to discover the history and Maison Lataste wines!
