Jean-Baptiste Lapostolle founded Grand Marnier in 1927. When his granddaughter married Louis-Alexandre Marnie, a man from a winemaking family, the Marnier Lapostolle dynasty was founded.
In the 1990s, Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle visited Chile and fell in love with the terroir. The vineyards are full of 75 to 100-year-old vines descended from pre-phylloxera rootstock brought from Bordeaux in the 1800s.
Clos Apalta is the flagship wine, made from century-old Carmenere vines.
