An interview with Sonia Ozanne, Commercial Director at Chateau ESCOT:
Do you already export to America? If yes, where? If no, what type of importers & distributors are you looking for in America?
Yes through the importer MR WINE.
What is the most unique and qualitative part of your products, different from competitors?
Our terroir is very qualitative and our wines are very well balanced.
When did you start to export your brand worldwide, and what is your development plan for the next years?
We started a few years ago, we want to make people know about Chateau Escot because its history dates back from antique time and the wines are like the history timeless. We planned to develop the US market even if it is not the best time right now but we know American people love French wines they have this culture and we know from experience that passion for wine has no boundaries.
