Interview with Bruno Prats – Former Owner of Chateau Cos D’Estournel

There are times when a bit of luck and good timing align to provide you an incredible opportunity. At the conference, there were so many people we wanted to talk to and many we unfortunately missed. Thus, I honestly didn’t expect Bruno Prats to talk with us. I had just listened to his speech on climate change, using three different continents as examples, when suddenly during our lunch break, I found myself being introduced to him as he poured me a glass of the stunning wine Chryseia, a Douro red he produces alongside Charles Symington. The wine was amazing and Bruno Prats himself happened to be one of the kindest and most sincere men I have spoken to. Quickly, I asked for a word with him on camera, and the video below is the result.

Today, Bruno produces wines in Chile, South Africa and Portugal, and this experience has taught him a considerable amount about how the world of wine is changing in the face of climate change. I hope that you enjoy the video, and if you have a chance, do not pass up the opportunity to taste Chryseia, a wine that clearly shows that the Douro Valley is one of the most promising terroirs in the world of wine today!
