Nicole Sierra Rolet

Co-Founder of Chêne Bleu; Chair, ARENI Institute

Nicole Rolet is a winegrower at her family estate in the Rhône Valley in the South of France. She founded Areni with the following ethos:

“In light of the 10th birthday of our estate, Chêne Bleu, I got to thinking about how much had happened in the last decade, how far we had come, and where we want to go from here. That led to thoughts about where the Fine Wine world is headed, which in turn raises questions about where the world itself is headed, this decade and beyond: scenarios for shifting geopolitics, mixed-message economics, global warming and its effects, trends in tech, millennial perspectives, perceptions of luxury and evolutions in our lifestyle such as fine dining.”
