Veronique Raskin's family started growing grapes in the south
of France in the late 1700's. Grapes led to wine, and their 50 acre
family estate, Chateau Bousquette, in the South of France, became a
working winery soon thereafter. Still, it wasn't until 1993 that
Veronique's brother and Bousquette's winemaker, decided to bottle a
wine in honor of Veronique's pioneering efforts to promote
organically grown wine in the United States.
"Bousquette" (pronounced boo-sket) in French means thicket or
grove. The word aptly describes the property: a simple family
estate nestled in pine trees, lavender and thyme, overlooking miles
of vineyards stretching all the way to the foot of the volcanic
mountains, the Cevennes.
The vineyards are moderated by the cooling breezes from the sea,
giving the grapes a long, even growing season. The result is
Chateau Veronique, a dry, medium-bodied wine with a jammy fruit
character of cherry, plum and blackberry complemented by aromas of
straw and oak.
