Clos Du Val

The story of Clos Du Val is rich in history, founded by the Goelet family in 1972, an era referred to as “the turning point in modern wine history.” Two years before, the family tasked talented French-born winemaker Bernard Portet with finding vineyard land capable of producing a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. Recently, Clos Du Val has experienced a renaissance in every facet of the winery. This period of revitalization started in 2012 and continues today with an emphasis on the exceptional Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignons that first catapulted Clos Du Val to fame.

"I’d heard great things about Trove Services, and their guaranteed ROI made it an easy decision to move forward. We are extremely pleased with the impact to our bottom line - $216,000 in identified savings."
