Philippe Guigal’s father, Marcel, planted a vineyard in his honour on the day he was born, so it’s no wonder that wine has been an integral part of his life from the start. Now at the helm of this celebrated Rhône winery, he’s a globally famous winemaker and a great communicator. Listen to us chat about the so-called ‘La Las’ – La Mouline, La Landonne and La Turque – his grandfather Etienne, his love of Port and why the Syrah grape rewards patience.
