Winemaker

Alain Château (Loire)

Alain Château is both an industrial entrepreneur and a wine lover. For him, sharing his passion for wine is about awakening a wealth of sensations and emotions in people. At Château de la Guimonière, Alain and his team cultivate 19 hectares of vineyards overlooking the Layon river. In autumn, the vines start the day surrounded by morning mists, only later to bask in warm sunshine, which are the ideal conditions for the harvesting of extra ripe grapes.
