Provenance & Masters Behind the Bottle
Summer Dreams has been a family-owned winery for over a century, currently helmed by Sophie Dupont, a fifth-generation winemaker. Her extensive experience includes a stint at Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, adding to the lineage of talent behind the label. The vineyard's history is steeped in meticulous craftsmanship, contributing to its iconic status.
Vineyard & Craftsmanship
The 40-hectare vineyard is uniquely situated on a gravel plateau, providing ideal conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The balanced blend of these grapes offers structured tannins and a nuanced palate. With an annual production of merely 8,000 cases, the scarcity of Summer Dreams wines adds to their allure and exclusivity.
Aging & Investment Value
Investors take note—Summer Dreams wines are not only an oenological treasure but also a financial asset. Due to their incredible aging potential, up to 40 years in some cases, these wines appreciate remarkably well over time.
