Thanks to her knowledge of English, Isabelle started at "Maison Sichel" in Bordeaux, right after her studies at Irvine's University (CA). Then, she worked for Hugues Lawton; she quickly realised that she needed a greater training in wines and went to the Institute of Oenology of Bordeaux where she graduated. This diploma enabled her to have access to professional tastings and develop her skills. After several years among the Chanel Group, based at Châetau Rauzan Ségla (Margaux) as a Sales Executive, Isabelle had an opportunity to change path, when the owner of a small business had to sell his shares for health reasons. Even though various wine merchants solicited her, she decided to create her own export business and develop her portfolio. Via Vinum (the wine route) is born with the support of her former export clients that helped her by placing their first orders.
The company quickly established itself in Saint Julien Beychevelle, in the heart of a major appellation, renowned for the quality of the wines produced. the choice of this address was an evidence for Isabelle, to be where the wines are produced, close to the field reality, close to the wines. Mathieu, Isabelle's son joined the company to face the increase in the activity and brings its support in logistics and administration, but he is also a graduate of the WSET.
