Michel Guignier

For me the wine is born in the earth, hence the interest to take great care of the soil. They must be as alive as possible to convey their character. This is the essential starting point for an authentic wine. For me a wine carries a story, I try to give my best at all stages of my work, in a coherence that combines rigor, mastery, respect for natural processes and intuition. The wine is the result, the wine the fruit. I started working my vines in organic farming by choice and personal conviction”. Michel Guignier is a fourth generation vigneron in Villié Morgon, in the heart of the AOC Morgon appellation in Beaujolais. Guignier follows a traditional vinification “à la Beaujolaise” with no de-stemming and with only indigenous yeasts used for the fermentation. Guignier’s wines display that transparent, ethereal, soil-driven quality that makes naturally-made, top Beaujolais so unique and joyful to drink. Michel makes his wines without any additions. No industrial yeast, no added enzymes, no acidification, no filtering, no fining, no sugar, no new oak and no added sulphites.
