Guigal was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in the village of Ampuis. His son, Marcel, took over from his father in 1961. The Guigal family owns vineyards in Condrieu and in the Côte-Rôtie with illustrious plots in many famous appellations. The wines are made and aged at 12th century Chateau d’Ampuis located in the northern Rhone. In the summer of 2003, in an effort to improve quality and control over all aspects of wine making, Guigal opened an onsite cooperage. The cooperage at the Château d’Ampuis works in partnership with the cooperage at Chagny managed by Seguin Moreau.
E. Cotes du Rhone Rouge is a blend of 45% Syrah, 52% Grenache, 3% Mourvèdre sourced from vines with an average age of 35 years old. The wine is vinified in the traditional way and is then aged for one and a half years in French oak foudres prior to bottling.
