Dany Rolland

 

Born and bred in the Dordogne, Dany Rolland was a brilliant student at the Bordeaux Faculty of Oenology, from which she graduated in 1970.
In 1976, she and her husband, Michel, bought the Chevrier laboratory in Libourne, which has since become Laboratoire Rolland in Pomerol. The couple has also managed Château Le Bon Pasteur since 1978 and purchased Château Fontenil in Fronsac, where they currently live, in 1986. Dany manages the laboratory and estates, while Michel consults. This entails a great deal of travelling, for both him and his wife.
The Rollands also look after several foreign wine estates they have acquired over time, mostly in partnerships: Campo Eliseo in Spain, Val de Flores, Clos de los Siete, and Mariflor in Argentina, Remhoogte in South Africa, etc.
Dany continues to manage the lab in Pomerol with a team of ten colleagues to meet the needs of some 400 clients. She also participates in Michel's consulting activity in France and abroad: 200 estates in 17 countries...
Dany Rolland is a fount of knowledge, extremely adaptable, and able to make the most of terroirs on several continents. She is one of the most gifted and well-reputed winemakers in the world.
