In 1997, true to his pioneering spirit, Michel Chapoutier set out to explore the terroirs of Australia.
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 Heathcote to plant the La Pleiade vineyard, on a very unusual, early Cambrian soil.
In 2001, Maison M. Chapoutier bought three other Australian vineyards, Shays Flat and Landsborough in the Victorian Pyrenees and the Lady’s Lane vineyard in Heathcote and set up the fully owned Domaine Tournon.
Michel Chapoutier manages an exceptional Estate, a land rich in history and tradition.
