This appellation is situated on the west bank of the Northern Rhône and produces full-bodied whites from Marsanne and Roussanne. Part of the production comes from the famous estates of Grippat and Vallouit. Some of the wine is aged in used oak but a significant proportion in stainless steel tanks to retain the freshness and fruit character.
Land with 24 centuries of history behind it, worked and preserved by three generations of winemakers with family values at their core and a commitment to an illustrious terrain that produces prestigious wines. This, in a nutshell, is the Maison Guigal. Right from the beginning the motto, “No Pains No Gains” underpins the promise made to Etienne Guigal
