Dylan Roche and Pénélope Furt Roche bring over 25 years of experience and obsession for grapegrowing and winemaking in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Spain, Australia and New Zealand. Pénélope is the 5th generation of vignerons at Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion (Pessac Leognan), the family estate whose wines rival the Grand Crus Classés of Bordeaux. She was in charge of the vineyards and winemaking. Dylan is a son of Vancouver. He studied wine in Beaune, Burgundy, and worked for five years with prestigious domaines in the Côte d’or and Chablis. He followed Pénélope to Bordeaux where he developed the Wine Education Program at Château Lynch Bages in Pauillac and made wine at the Margaux estate of Jean-Luc Thunevin (Château Valandraud). The young, dynamic and knowledgeable couple decided to move to British Columbia after the sale of Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion in 2010. They are now actively involved in the BC wine industry and some of you may already be familiar with Intersection Wines, for who Dylan acts as the man in charge aka the winegrower/winemaker.
