Guillaume Gonnet Vigneron | Portfolio Feature

The vineyard owners Guillaume and Kelly Gonnet give you an exclusive virtual tour of the historic Grand Cru appellation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This video offers an in-depth look at the magic behind thesed wines and how they are brought to life. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre are deeply rooted in this terroir, and together they form the characteristic qualities embodied by the wines of Guillaume Gonnet: softness, elegance and finesse.

The Gonnet family has been settled in Bédarrides, France since 1600. Etienne Gonnet and Jeanne Brunier married and created Font de Michelle in 1950. Today the domaine is managed by the grandchild of Etienne, Guillaume Gonnet. With their vines, and selected parcels inherited from Guillaume’s family, Guillaume continues to produce wine that reflects his philosophy for winemaking; which includes 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 Robin on the label can often be found in their organically farmed vineyards and embodies all that drives the creation of these wines – dreams, liberty, and terroir. The Guillaume Gonnet property includes 30 hectares in Chateauneuf du Pape and 20 hectares in Côtes du Rhône & Côtes du Rhône Village.
