Summary

In the small town of Margaux, which produces some of the greatest French wines from the Médoc region, Château Kirwan has a long family history that stretches back three centuries. Classified as a Grand Cru since 1855, the bottles produced by this vineyard, which is named after Mark Kirwan, a rich Irish vintner who came from a family of merchants, have become popular despite a ruthlessly competitive market.

Château Kirwan, a gem within the Margaux PDO

Sophie Schÿler is the standard bearer for the company abroad. After graduating from Bordeaux University with a degree in politics and economics, this avid music aficionado travelled the world to promote her wines, increase sales, and create new distribution networks with wine traders who work with the PDO, most of whom are located in Asia and the United States.
