Who would have thought a chance meeting in a snow storm in Vail, Colorado, would lead to a stunning Swede and a handsome American buying a Provence Chateau, and producing award winning wine? Fairytales do happen you know, even if you don’t dream it you can do it! “We were on our honeymoon, chilling out with a nice rosé, on Plage 55, when a friend decided to show us a chateau”, explains the stunning Swede, Christine von Eggars Rudd. “Alan and I had no intention of buying anything, until we saw Palayson, something inside us would not let go”. Huh! An impulse buy, go figure. They were, and are, happy as Larry, maybe some people thrive on aggravation.
