Liz and Frans Roskam are an international couple. Frans grew up in Bordeaux, where he comes from a fourth generation family of winemakers. Liz is from outside Chicago, and has studied winemaking across the US and abroad. They met in the early 2000s, on an exchange program between the Universities of Illinois and Toulouse, and they were soon married and partnering together to make fine wine.

They now own and oversee production at Chateaux La Lauzette, Haut Plantey, Cantenac and Moulin de Grenet. Liz’s new world perspective melds with Frans’ traditional insight to create appealing and complex wines that are respected on both sides of the ocean.
