Event Details

According to local archives, the Gonnet family has been settled in Bédarrides in the Rhône Valley since 1600. Etienne Gonnet and Jeanne Brunier married and created Font de Michelle in 1950. Today the Domaine is being managed by their grandchild and this seminar’s guest speaker, Guillaume Gonnet.

Before joining his family as third generation winemaker, Guillaume travelled the world working in some of the most famous wineries in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Napa Valley, New Zealand, and finally in Australia where he met his future wife, Kelly. The Guillaume Gonnet – Vigneron wines are an exciting new chapter for this lovely and diligent young couple.

Guillaume and Kelly have purchased their own plots in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. With their vines, and selected parcels inherited from Guillaume’s family, Guillaume continues to produce wine that reflects his philosophy for winemaking: minimal interference with the “terroir effect” by following biodynamic agricultural principles, ensuring the wine is balanced, soft with elegant tannins and very little wood influence. Guillaume has always been fascinated by the notion of “terroir,” most notably about how the Southern Rhône varieties express themselves in diverse terroir.

The signature Robin on the labels can often be found in their organically farmed vineyards and embodies all that drives the creation of these wines - dreams, liberty, and terroir.
