In 1994, Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, scion of the French wine- and spirit-making family that produces Grand Marnier, and her husband, Cyril de Bournet, began growing grapes and making wine in Chile’s fertile Colchagua Valley. Ten years later, they completed a centerpiece winery on a hill overlooking their estate. Lapostolle Clos Apalta, designed by Amercanda Architects, is a six-level structure of wood, glass, and steel that looks a bit like a bird’s nest perched on the side of a mountain. Along with tasting facilities, Lapostolle offers Relais & Châteaux accommodations.
