Michel Chapoutier & Ron Laughton

Ron Laughton and Michel Chapoutier are two avant-garde winemakers, charismatic individuals and innovative leaders in organic and biodynamic philosophy.

Ron Laughton and Michel Chapoutier–two avant-garde winemakers, charismatic individuals and innovative leaders in organic and biodynamic philosophy.


In 1997, true to his pioneering spirit, Michel Chapoutier set out to explore the oldest continent's terroirs. He wanted to meet people, people like him with a passionate interest in bringing out vines' true character. A matter of convictions, too, prompting discovery and observation. He found land awaiting its revelation.

Michel Chapoutier aims to invent properties, not to follow others' example. Michel Chapoutier buys land and joins forces with major winemaking families, playing on their complementary know-how and experience. The result is exceptional Shiraz wines, displaying great elegance and mineral purity. In 2002 he joined forces with Ron and Elva Laughton (Jasper Hill) in central Victoria, and at Heathcote, north of Melbourne, on a very unusual, early Cambrian soil.
