M Chapoutier

Michel Chapoutier, a wine enthusiast turned producer is one of the top names in France's Rhone Valley and throughout the wine world. A self-titled 'wine-grower, wine-maker and wine lover', Chapoutier has incredible passion for each plot of land in his holdings; he converted to biodynamic farming methods in 1991 out of a respect for each site's unique characteristics. Drawing grape sources from all areas of the Rhone Valley, Chapoutier produces a portfolio of super premium Syrah-based wines. From the vast, regional Cotes-du-Rhone, to the highly prized land of Hermitage, Chapoutier puts his stamp of quality and site expression on every wine bearing his name. Now, after having explored global wine regions, he has set his sights on another famed Shiraz region: Australia. With a desire to meet and work with winemakers sharing the same interest, Chapoutier has created partnerships with Australian wine superstars, Ron and Elva Laughton of Jasper Hill (2002) and Rick Kinzbrunner of Giaconda (2007). His estate Domaine Tournon is in the Victorian Pyrenees.
