Château Franc-Cardinal wine producer

Château Franc-Cardinal
Now one of the top châteaux in the up-and-coming Francs Côtes de Bordeaux AOC, Ch. Franc-Cardinal only began to bottle its own wine in 2001, when it was bought by Canadian Philip Holzberg.  Philip transformed the estate’s three vineyards, Boscamenan, Nardou and Bois de Naud, converting them to organic cultivation (though full certification is still in the pipeline).
 
Sadly Philip died in a car accident in 2010, but his wife Sophie continues to run the estate.  The diving otter logo which appears on the labels is a reference to his Canadian origins and his love of swimming, and to the new, pesticide-free regime in the vineyards: otters thrive only in unpolluted waters.
