About Audrey Bonnet–Koenig

Audrey Bonnet–Koenig first (and brilliantly reviewed ) vintage at La Pèira was the 2015 .

Audrey took up the baton from Jeremie Depierre, whose time at La Pèira over 10 years ending with the 2014 vintage was one of extraordinary achievement. (To see our piece first published March 11, 2009 on the early days at La Peira click here.)

Gaining some international experience working in Franschhoek, in the Stellenbosch region, she returned to France finally becoming Directrice technique at Château de Sérame a 500 hectare property located near the Canal du Midi and owned by the Dourthe / CBGB Grand Crus groupe.

There she was responsible for the winemaking, and vine growing, converting the entire 175 hectare of vineyard to organic farming.

For the last 7 years she’s worked with Oenologist Claude Gros who has worked with us at La Pèira from the start.
