We’re delighted to welcome Charlies Sichel to ring in Bastille Day with us in this exclusive lunch time tasting. Prepare the baguette and the rillette and grab a glass of something French (if you can!)
Maison Sichel first set up an acquisitions office in Bordeaux in 1883, and since then six generations of the Sichel family have built upon their empire. Not only do they sell wine today, but they are also growers and winemakers, and represent some very well-respected names. They currently own wine estates covering 350 hectares of vineyards, including Châteaux Angludet and Palmer in Bordeaux, and Château Trillol in Corbières and are behind The Society’s Claret, made at Cave Bel Air in the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux region.
Anyone who has ever met the charismatic Sichels know what a dynamic, interesting but above all friendly bunch they are and so it is with great delight that we will be chatting to Charlie Sichel, part of the sixth generation and in charge, alongside brothers Jamie and David, of the world-wide export markets.
Together with The Society’s Bordeaux buyer Tim Sykes they will be discussing the role of the négociant in Bordeaux, making member favourite, The Society’s Claret and what it’s like to work with your family.
