The energetic and charismatic Guillaume
Gonnet is not your average Rhône winemaker. Extremely open in his
attitude, his curious, boundary challenging approach extends beyond
He travelled to the far ends of the earth, revelling in the
opportunity to surf some of the best waves in the world while
learning his craft in various Australian and New Zealand regions.
Returning to the Rhône, now with his Australian wife Kelly, he has
shown similar energy for his family estate and for his own nascent
project. This land locked surfer may be miles from the ocean but is
happily riding the wave of new found enthusiasm for Grenache based
wines. Pursuing biodynamics wherever possible, allowing his fruit
to express itself freely through hands-off winemaking and
displaying his fascination for the varying soils of the Rhône
through his diverse range of wines, he's just the sort of restless
creative that we love to work with.
