Ep. 1062 Sally Evans | Uncorked
Welcome to episode 1062 in which host Polly Hammond interviews Sally Evans of Chateau George 7, this week on Uncorked.

In this episode, we are joined by Sally Evans, owner of Chateau George 7. Sally’s story is inspiring and delightful — At the time when many people are considering slowing down the pace of life, Sally took a decidedly different path, she bought a parcel of 35-year old vines in Fronsac and started a winery. Today, we talk about how her career in Business Strategy and Marketing informs her decisions, how those decisions have helped her build an award-winning winery, and the adventure of starting a new business after 50. Let’s get into it!

More about today’s guest:
After a career at a global consulting company in Paris then Nice, and with the family having flown the nest, Sally Evans felt that the time had come to have a new adventure. She started studying WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust) wine courses and traveled to Bordeaux to explore the city and its appellations. Within months, she was destined to own a winery, and Chateau George 7 was born.

By 2020, Sally had transformed a dilapidated tractor barn into a wine tourism venue to coincide with the bottling of her first vintage and by late 2021, Chateau George 7 was recognised with a Best of Wine Tourism Gold Award.
