ABOUT

We are really lucky to produce wines in the same style as our fathers. We really want to stay within the traditional Famille Gonnet style: not extracting too much, or adding too much wood.

Our aim is to create wines that are both drinkable and that cellar well. We want to improve our style, but certainly not change it, regardless of current fashion. I want to be able to enjoy the wine I make today with my son and daughter in 20 years time, like I do with my father today. We really value our fathers’ 40 years of collective knowledge and experience. They know each plot of land; they understand the weather - it’s like having two living encyclopedias on hand.
