The inspiring Katia Garrouste, a passionate 35 year-old woman, full of energy, from nearby Toulouse is behind Chateau Flotis. Katia met her partners, Cathy Ribes and Myriam Ribes while working at Chateau Le Roc. Together, they formed a great team and decided to make it official. When they found some old Négrette vines in Chateau Flotis property, they bought the estate and released the first vintage in 2004. Cathy, who is married to Frederic, is the business brain while Myriam is in charge of sales and marketing and our dear friend Katia has the best job – overseeing the vineyards and making the wine. After studying law in Toulouse and working in that field for a few years, she jumped into the Flotis project and is today considered one of the most promising South West winemakers.
