Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: HAS TWO HEARTS - ONE IN NAPA AND ONE IN BORDEAUX Sharon’s keen interest in wine has led her to France many times, where she owns a luxury rental villa in St. Emilion, in the heart of Bordeaux. Sharon is Napa Valley Vintner and owns a boutique winery called RARECAT Wines. In 2004 the Sharon applied to the famous DUAD (Diplome Universitaire d’Aptitude a la Degustation des Vins) program, offered through the University of Bordeaux’s Oeonlogy department and were accepted. The DUAD was an intensive year long program that took 4 years of oenology and condensed it into one compacted year, a less technical program, but still at the molecular level. She graduated with honors after having nailed the question on “horse sweat” known better as Brettanomyces. ” So, with her love of Napa and Bordeaux, in 2005, Sharon decided to restore and build luxury villas where her hearts are—one in the town of Calistoga, at the northern end of the Napa Valley and in the town of St Emilion, in the heart of Bordeaux. Napa is now Sharon's permanent home. “I love talking to people about Bordeaux and Napa, helping wine lovers fall in love with these two great wine regions. Mostly, it is about making personal connections for people, creating memorable experiences for people around wine, food and friends.' Sharon helps educate female executives through a seminar series called, Don't Give Up the Wine List and other educational programs provided by A Woman's Palate. Enough about us. Email us your wine stories.

Why the Owner Chose Bordeaux:
We love wine. We love Bordeaux wines. If you come to Bordeaux, simply the most wonderful place to stay is in St Emilion, one of France's most beautiful and historic villages. We bought Chateau des Amis because it was a rare diamond in the rough. It is located in St Emilion but outside the busy center. There are almost no homes walking distance to town. When we saw the location, stood in the large garden overlooking vineyards and the village's historic monuments, we knew this was a once in a life time opportunity. You can park your cars and walk everywhere - walk to dinner at one of St Emilion's wonderful restaurants, walk to wine chateaux, wine schools, shopping...etc.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Location is everything. Chateau des Amis is located in one of France's most beautiful and historic villages. The villa is outside the tourist center with a private garden with wonderful views yet you are a minute walk to everything: restaurants, wine schools, wine tasting, art galleries and shopping. You have all the amenities of a 5 star hotel with privacy, comfort and fun of being in your own place. If you love wine, you will love staying at Chateau des Amis. We can help arrange wine tours, culinary tours, wine tastings, private dinners (in villa or at a wine estate) and wine classes. Special Offer: Free Wine Class for up to 8 Chateau des Amis guests. Go back to school, this time wine school. Vignobles & Chateaux, a top St Emilion wine merchant, will host up to 8 adults at L'Ecole du Vin. You will learn about Bordeaux's wine growing region and wine making techniques at their specially designed wine school located a short walk from Chateau des Amis. The group will taste three different wines, learning how to distinguish them by color, smell and taste. Each guest will receive a notebook and personalized certificate to remind you of your day. Class needs to be booked in advance and are based on space availability. L'Ecole du Vin is conducted by Vignobles & Chateaux, a top wine merchant in St Emilion.
