    THE STORY:The Gauthiers have been crafting wine in the town of Benais for five generations, but the large majority of it has happened behind closed doors: They were consuming their own wine and privately doling out small allocations to friends, family, and local spots up until 1970, when they finally allowed an importer to represent them. The late, great Didier Dagueneau also had his hand in catapulting them to fame, directing inquiring clients to their idyllic estate. Quite the sponsorship! The man in charge of this daunting private-to-commercial transition was Pierre Gauthier and today he and his son, Rodolphe, are jointly in charge of operations. While they were expanding, Pierre also made the decision to start farming as naturally as possible and by the year 2000, they were Certified Organic.
