From Palm Beach to Gascony: Meet The Breakers’ Wines

If you’ve sipped The Breakers’ selection of custom-blended house wines, then your taste buds have visited the southwest of France.

In fact, our Master Sommelier Virginia Philip and members of the executive Food and Beverage team travel nearly 5,000 miles to Domaine du Tariquet in Gascony each year to create the unique and sensational taste of The Breakers’ excusive collection of house wines.

Originally founded in 1683, Château du Tariquet (above) has been the primary home of the Grassa family of winemakers since 1912. The family is currently the largest vineyard landholders in France.

Yves Grassa, a second-generation family owner, took over the exquisite grounds from his father who had produced only Armagnac. Yves decided to transform the land, adding a technologically advanced winemaking facility that has been producing brilliant wines for years. Yves is currently residing in Romania, leaving his sons Armin and Remy at the helm and visiting Domaine du Tariquet as often as possible.

Last month, our Director of Food & Beverage for Catering and Banquets, Joan Bever, and Executive Chef of Banquets Jeff Simms joined Virginia Philip on the annual blending trip to Domaine du Tariquet – an exclusive partnership now ten years in the making.

 The team joined the Grassa family in the tasting room (above, left) blending and re-blending each variation of wine until the final selections for this year’s house wines were just perfect — an easy task with a clear view of savory grapes and vines in every window.
