Michel Chapoutier
Wine Producer
Michel Chapoutier, while pursuing the wine making heritage of his family based in Tain l’Hermitage in southern Rhone, has been credited with his entrepreneurial and innovative approach which among other things has led to the introduction of biodymanie in their vineyard management. His focus on producing very big style wines from Northern Rhone, especially Hermitage, has paid off as Chapoutier now holds about one third of the appellation and is famed for his blockbuster wines. His Burgundian approach to single vineyard management has resulted in wines of very distinct character which are often mono varietals, not only with reds but also with whites. His wine making ventures have now expanded to Ardeche, Roussillon, Alsace, Portugal and Australia. Michel Chapoutier is not only a driving forces in the Rhone viticulture but also an emblematic figure in the French wine industry for his progressive views.
Philippe Guigal
Managing Director
Philippe Guigal is the Managing Director and oenologist of the illustrious family estate Maison Guigal located in Ampuis, northern Rhône, famed for its terroirs plots in Côte-Rôtie. While pursuing a tradition of sustainable vineyard management, his approach to wine making and especially barrel ageing is of utmost precision with the decision several decades ago to have oak barrels crafted in-house. Not only managing successfully his position as both producer and négociant éleveur, Philippe Guigal runs a stable of impressive vineyards from north to south of Rhône after the acquisition of other premium estates in the Rhône valley.
