Château Leoville Barton Sartorius

Bordeaux, France

Lillian is the 9th generation of the Barton family.

After carrying out her studies in England, Lilian began her career working in a bank in Bordeaux before moving to Hong-Kong for 2 years to work for the shipping company ''Les Chargeurs Réunis''. In 1978, at the age of 22, Lilian joined her father at his merchant company and obtained the DUAD wine tasting diploma at the University of Bordeaux.

For over 30 years they have divided their responsibilities between the Saint Julien vineyards and the merchant business 'Les Vins Fins Anthony Barton', where they were joined by Lilian's husband, Michel Sartorius. Lilian Barton has now taken over from her father in running the wine properties and family merchant company. She has since been joined by her two children, Mélanie and Damien.
