Guigal has had a metoric rise to greatness in the Rhone Valley they were in founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis. Guigal are the leading negociant in the Rhone Valley, this is a major acclomplishment when you consider that most European wine dynasties trace their origins back to the 1800's. Three generations later we now find Phillipe Guigal with his wife Eve buy his side as the Estates winemaker and Managing Director. In 1995 Guigal acquired the famous Chateau d'Ampuis an oenological monument whose long history is linked to the Cote Rotie appellation. The Chateau has become the headquarters of the Guigal Estate and the ffices and cellars remain in the village of Ampuis. Today there are 3 hecatres of cellars and the history and soul of the Guigal family are clearly present in these cellars. We are lucky to have Rod Hull the Asia Pacific representative joining us to guide us through a huge range of their wines.

Chile and Argentina have long provided some of the greatest value in the world of wine, but now drinkers are waking up to just how high the quality is at the premium end. Our GM Liz Wheadon has recently visited the regions, and hand selected some of the finest boutique wineries to import. Tonight she will be coming down to Wellington to present 8 different wineries, and some of their most exciting wines from $40 to over $200 a bottle. A bit like bringing ice to eskimos, we'll be starting with the Casa Marin Sauvignon Blanc 2017 from Chile. This is their flagship, a two time winner for the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world! Then we move to two of the finest wineries in Argentina. Huarpe Gualtallary Terroir - Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Franc 2016. Followed by the Riglos Gran Gabernet Franc 2017. Then we move to South America's first ever certified biodynamic wine, Emiliana Signos de Origin Carmenere from the Colchagua Valley in Chile. The Malbecs are next, starting with Renacer Punto Final Malbec Reserva 2015 from 50yr old vines at 1100m. From around Mendoza we then have the Achaval Ferrer Finca Alta Mira Malbec 2014 and the incredible Zuccardi Finca Peidra Infinta 2014. Our last two beautiful wines are from the ancient Carmenere variety in Chile, Casa Lapostelle Cuvee Alexandra Carmenere 2016, finishing with the stunning Errazuriz Kai Carmenere 2015.
