Chinese actress Zhao Wei buys herself a fourth chateau

July 25, 2019

Actress, singer and director Zhao Wei is gradually building up a wine group in Bordeaux. Since 2011, the Chinese star has successively bought Châteaux Monlot (8 ha in AOC Saint-Émilion Grand Cru), Patarabet (9 ha in AOC Saint-Émilion), Senailhac (57 ha in Entre-Deux-Mers) and this year Château La Croix de la Roche (12 ha in AOC Fronsac and Bordeaux). Revealed by Laurence Lemaire, this latest acquisition was signed on March 29. Isabelle Maurin, who had owned the château since 1982, sold it due to lack of a family member willing to take over the property.
