READ ABOUT Guigal Winery...

Established in 1946, Guigal has become one of the most famous brand names for Rhône wines the world over. They are based in the town of Ampuis in the heart of the Côte-Rôtie (or roasted slope as it is known in translation). The ancient vineyards of the estate are over 2,000 years old and the terraced walls of the area are a reminder of the Romans that were responsible for building them. Etienne Guigal started making wine in the region in 1923 and oversaw 67 Vintages, his son Marcel took over from his father in 1961. Today third generation Phillipe is responsible for making some of the finest wines from the Rhône Valley.

Guigal Location

The Guigal vineyards covers about 215 hectares of the Côte-Rôtie including the Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde, these amazing vineyards were planted over 24 centuries ago by the Romans. The Côte Brune is planted religiously to Shiraz while the Côte Blonde is reserved for Viognier a vital part of the Côte-Rôtie blend. Guigal also has over 100 hectares of Viognier in the famed Condrieu appellation overlooking the right bank of the Rhône.

Guigal Wine Styles

The main styles of wines are Rhône blends such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape (a blend of Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvèdre), plus other obscure grapes of the region. Viognier from Condrieu is a big drawcard as are the straight Shiraz and blends ranging from the famed Hermitage and Crozes Hermitage right through to the Côte-Rôtie reds.

Guigal Brands

All wines are released under the Guigal brand and there are about fourteen different styles in the range not including the very top tier which includes some of the most lauded wines in the world. They are affectionally known as the La La’s a shortening of the histoic plots named La Turque, La Landonne and La Mouline.

Guigal Winery

Guigal strive to use natural vineyard practices where it is possible, natural practices help to combat disease and ensure the grapes can express the complexity of these hallowed patches of soil.
