Alain Graillot is one of the towering figures of the Northern Rhone.
A leader in the shift to more sustainable vineyard practices in the region, Graillot has mentored scores of younger generation producers during his time at the helm.
Now with his sons Maxime and Antoine having taken on leg work across his Rhone holdings and even those in Beaujolais, the Graillot name is one that will continue to resonate in the French winemaking community for decades to come.
The wines of Graillot are small in production but large in production and stature. Benchmark stuff from a living legend of the Rhone.
