La Belle Citadelle was created to bring a feel of the past into our homes by bringing wines that truly represent their authentic origin and terroir. Their styles have been carefully crafted to provide enjoyment and pleasure while respecting the true characteristics of each varietal. More importantly a style that integrates its origin and its purpose: The desire to over deliver, surpass expectations and fully satisfy the person who is discovering the wine for the first time...

La Belle Citadelle emulates the creation of a work of art. This is a labor of love, and sharing this passion with others was the driving force behind the project.Our work was quickly noticed, and The Sunset International Wine Challenge (2017) awarded medals to all of our first vintages. Guy Azera
