Meet the Wine Maker
According to local archives, the Gonnet family has been settled in Bédarrides since 1600. Beda is a town about 1 mile east of Chateauneuf du Pape. After centuries of growing grapes, the family, namely Etienne Gonnet, created a winery in 1950 the famous Font de Michelle. It is one of the icons of the region! Today, the 3rd generation, specifically Guillaume Gonnet, has taken control of the family winery. In addition to managing his family’s holdings, Guillaume and his wife, Kelly, have begun purchasing their own plots in Chateauneuf.
We are happy to welcome Guillaume to West Palm Wines for a dinner featuring six of his wines from the great 2015 vintage including three different Chateauneuf du Pape. This will be an event to remember and only 30 seats are available. Reserve your place today!
