Our winegrower

Philippe Mercadier

Philippe, a winegrower in the south of France, who has always been a winegrower, also ran the family estate, Château Suduiraut, a Premier Cru Classé or "first growth" vineyard classified in 1855, for 25 years. A time when he acquired his know-how and an unwavering love of Sauternes. After the cru was sold in 1992, he couldn't bring himself to leave the region and over the years he had the opportunity to acquire three new estates in Sauternes.

Today, he runs them alongside his son Paul.


Paul Mercadier

Paul is the fifth generation in the line of winegrowers. He joined his father in 2001 when Château de Veyres was purchased.

Since then, he has brought his passion to managing the three family estates in Sauternes. He is responsible for all the technical aspects, from the vine to the cellar.

Sandrine, Charles and Sébastien make up the permanent team that assists him every day.


Antoine Mercadier

Antoine helps his father Philippe at the estates in southern France in Escale (Aude) and Bessan (Hérault).

But he's more than willing to give his brother Paul a helping hand when it's harvest time in Sauternes.


Emilie Mercadier

Emilie fell in love with and married Paul before she found she has a passion for the profession, having not know anything about it at one time..

After graduating in political science, it was an obvious decision for her to come and join Paul and work as a team to make the family estates prosper.

She is in charge of sales, communications and marketing.

They have two beautiful daughters, Lou and Jeanne.
