Debra Meiburg MW Meets the Winemaker 126: Stephen Carrier, Château de Fieuzal
Debra catches up with the ever-enthusiastic Stephen Carrier, winemaker for Château de Fieuzal, located in the heart of Graves, Bordeaux, which produces very famous white wines, despite it being disproportionately out-produced by their reds. He tells Debra about their famous neighbours, the dynamic nature of the area and about the Irish owners of the property.
Stephen talks about how his job for the last three years has been to come in and restore and replant the vineyards to match the more traditional mix of grape varieties for Bordeaux, with the next challenge being to rebuild the winery. Finally he tells Debra the surprising location of his first red winemaking job and what his beverages of choice are.
