The Romans, King Henry the IV, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Napoléon….the Chateau de Portets, its parish and port make up an important part of local heritage.
Today : Marie-Hélène Yung-Théron, the granddaughter, works hard to enhance the property, the most imposing building in Portets, its vines, its wines and its history. Married to Rodolphe YUNG since 1998, they have two children, Charles and Paul. To this day, Château de Portets remains a family property, welcoming under its roof 3 generations. The family’s life is punctuated by the winemaking work, so much so that Charles decided to study agricultural engineering at the ESA school in Angers. Paul, on the other hand, prefers to move towards new horizons by going to a business school in Lille. Marie-Hélène has always encouraged her sons to follow their own path, and if that path leads them back to Portets one day, it will be a happy opportunity for her to pass on her passion. Rodolphe, her husband, through his work as a chartered accountant and winegrower, works every day on the family estate “Les Hauts de Palette”, making the wine but also providing valuable assistance in the commercial management of Portets wines.
In short, a growing family saga to tell!
