THE HERITAGE OF THOUSAND-YEAR-OLD VINES ON AN EXCEPTIONAL VINEYARD
In the small ancient village of Ampuis, the cradle of the Côte Rôtie appellation, Domaine Guigal was founded by Étienne Guigal in 1946. This House is located on an exceptional vineyard where the vines are cultivated and where the wine has been produced for more than 2,000 years. Vinifying 67 harvests in this AOC, Etienne Guigal contributed to the development of the Vidal-Fleury Establishments early in his career. Despite Etienne Guigal's total blindness, the growth of the company, in which family is a primary value, continues with his son Marcel and his wife Bernadette. Trained as an enologist, their son Philippe, accompanied by his wife Eve, now represents the third generation of the Guigal family. Since the beginning of this adventure, the family has worked with passion, know-how and perseverance to produce great wines from the Rhône Valley. This has resulted in the acquisition of various estates in the greatest appellations of the Rhône Valley, including the famous Château d'Ampuis, Domaine de Vallouit and the former Domaine Jean-Louis Grippat, Domaine de Bonserine and Château de Nalys.
