Victoria Golf Club - Todd Room
1110 Beach Drive
Victoria, British Columbia
Opimian Wine Club de Vin is delighted to welcome Carole Doyard-Mahe to Canada! Come meet Carole & mingle with your Opimian friends and taste wonderful Champagne!
Carole is a 4th generation winemaker in Champagne. Her own grandfather Maurice Doyard co-founded the Comite Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC), one of the first ever regional wine committees created in France. She joined the family business in 2005 while studying viticulture. Carole is now in charge of the vines, the wines and exports. Doyard-Mahe has eliminated herbicides in the vineyard the past two years and works with compost to protect the soils. Carole uses parcel based vinification to create more precise wines for her upcoming cuves. All of the Champagnes she produces come from her Chardonnay vineyards in Vertus at the southern end of the Cotes des Blancs. All are classified as Premier Cru.
