Nicole Sierra-Rolet's International Journey From Wall Street to Wine
Upon graduating from Vassar College, Nicole Sierra-Rolet floated into an expected, successful Manhattan career in international relations. Upon meeting an intriguing Frenchman her life took a widely divergent course which led her, her eventual husband, and his family in France to develop La Verrière. With time and effort from this Provençal property grew Chêne Bleu, a wine brand cultivated with native grapes--Grenache, Syrah, Rolle and more--of southern France. But with projects like Areni Global, a sometime wine school, and developing her alma mater's Institute of Liberal Arts, Sierra-Rolet hasn't and won't rest.
