“Our collection of wines are fresh, flavorful, and well suited for Firebirds’ delicious entrees,” said Founder Alexandra Marnie Lapostolle. “Reflecting the principles of biodynamic agriculture, Lapostolle wines are native to the local ecosystem and use only earth’s ingredients to grow, protect and produce clean grapes in healthy vineyards.”
Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and Cyril de Bournet founded Lapostolle in 1994, with the goal to create world-class wines by combining superb terroirs of Chile with French experience and expertise. Lapostolle was a pioneer in developing the Apalta region, a small part of the Colchagua Valley that is now considered Chile’s first grand cru. Lapostolle’s Clos Apalta flagship red wine, introduced in 1999 and awarded the #1 wine of the year by Wine Spectator in 2008, has consistently received critical praise and is widely considered to be among the world’s finest red wines. The Apalta vineyard is 100% organic and biodynamically farmed. Today, Lapostolle owns more than 900 acres in three different vineyards and produces over 200,000 cases annually. The U.S. is the company’s No. 1 market.
