Owner and winemaker of his family’s Châteauneuf du Pape estate since 2006, ‘Guillaume Gonnet, Vigneron’, was created by Guillaume and his Australian wife Kelly. Guillaume and Kelly have always been fascinated by the notion of “terroir”, most notably about how the Southern Rhône varieties express themselves in diverse terroir. Guillaume Gonnet wines are the realisation of their dream to explore the potential of Southern Rhône grape varieties in varing terroir in the South of France, and around the world.

Strawberry, watermelon, citrus aromas and floral notes, nice acidity and minerality in the mouth, a fresh and crispy finish.
Everything goes well with this wine! Fish, chicken, grilled meats, pizza, even a mouth watering burger. It is the perfect aperitif or food wine.
