Tournon

The Chapoutier family have long been known as a leading light of the Rhône Valley, but in 1997 Michel Chapoutier expanded their horizons into the New World, specifically the Australian region of Victoria. Initially making wines in conjunction with renowned local wineries such Jasper Hill and Giaconda, in 2009 Chapoutier purchased the Shays Flat and Landsborough Valley estates in the Australian Pyrenees, giving birth to the wholly owned Domaine Tournon. Here Chapoutier’s skilled hand manages to evoke the minerality and elegance of the Northern Rhône, whilst still expressing the soil and climate of Victoria.
