My name is César. This is my nephew, Ugolin. You may find life here at the chateau hard, but if you shut up and do exactly what we say, the time will pass more quickly.

César is one of two hostile French wine makers who force Bart to be their slave. His nephew is Ugolin.


César and Ugolin are the owners and only employees (aside from Maurice the Donkey) of the Chateau Maison wine orchard. They use the foreign exchange student program to get Bart from the U.S. and have him work for them as their slave, to replace their donkey. They are relatively mean men and they give Bart relatively little food, force him to sleep on the ground, and make him taste the Anti-Freeze filled wine.


They had not waited long enough for their wine to ferment, so had decided to add Anti-Freeze to it for flavor. They got Bart to taste-test it (making sure he hadn't gone blind after drinking it), then sent Bart out to get some more Anti-Freeze. This turned out to be their undoing: Once Bart realized he had subliminally learnt fluent French, he told a passing police officer everything, and César and Ugolin were arrested. It is assumed they went to a French prison.

Later, they are seen watching TV in an apartment, implying that they were either released from jail or placed on parole. [1]

In the episode "To Courier with Love" he is shown as a hostile leather maker who tries to kill the blue snake that Homer was supposed to give them to pay for a trip to France, he tries to forcefully get it back, but ultimately fails.
