Country Of Origin: Australia

The Chapoutier family have been making wine in the French Rhône Valley since 1808.  Michel Chapoutier took over the family business in 1990 from his Grandfather and is the seventh generation family member to lead the comapny and create wines which really speak of their origin. Michel sees himself as a 'wine-grower, wine-maker and a wine-lover', all of which have allowed M.Chapoutier to become one of the most recognised and awarded biodynamic wine producers in the world.

 

A continual creator and innovator, M.Chapoutier now has vineyards around the world, seeking excellence in the land Down Under, in 2009 Michel Chapoutier bought two new vineyards (Shays Flat Estate and Landsborough Valley Estate) in the Victorian Pyrenees to set up the fully owned label, Tournon.

 
Michel recognized two unique terroirs that would allow him to make distinctive wines utilizing grapes that originate in his homeland.  A southern extension of the Great Dividing Range, The Pyrenees foothills and ranges create a remarkable diversity of microclimates and soils that provide wealth of variety for winemakers. 
 
 
The cool weather patterns and unique soil in this region are an ideal place for the development of Chapoutier’s biodynamic winegrowing philosophy, and of extending Rhône traditions.  Like in Hermitage, Michel's challenge is to show the diversity of this area by producing great wines from different type of soils.
 
 
The Mathilda range is named after both an Australian icon and Michel's daughter Mathilde.
