Grégory Guillaume started making wine in 2011, having originally moved to the Ardèche to explore caves. He discovered the joys of artisan wine from a friend, with whom he worked before starting out on his own. He now farms around three hectares of vines around the picturesque villages of Villeneuve-de-Berg and Alba-la-Romaine.
Syrah from a forty year old vineyard. This spends two weeks infusing as whole bunches, with no pigeage, before being pressed off to old barrels for a year. Dark fruited, herbaceous and briny, with some fine little tannins to boot. This is Syrah at it’s most easygoing and elemental and simply a wonderful wine for everyday.
