Michel Chapoutier

In 1997, Michel Chapoutier set off to explore the terroirs of Australia and settled in the state of Victoria. Renowned for its distinct soils and astonishing diversity of microclimates. With vineyards in the Pyrenees and Heathcote, their goal is to create world class wines that speak of the individual terroirs in which they are grown. Initially making wines in conjunction with renowned local wineries such JasperHill and Giaconda, in 2009 Chapoutier purchased the Shays Flat and Landsborough Valley estates in the Australian Pyrenees, giving birth to the wholly owned Domaine Tournon.

In Australia, the Tournon range is distributed primarily through on-premise independent retail channels. They work with their distribution partners in Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia and are developing their own distribution channel in New South Wales and Queensland. 

Unsurprisingly, Shiraz's focus, which under Chapoutier’s skilled hand manages to evoke the minerality and elegance of the Northern Rhône, whilst still expressing the soil and climate of Victoria.
