Stéphane Ogier is one of the most spectacular representatives of the young guard on the northern Rhône. Until 1982, the business set up by his father Michel sold the entire harvest to renowned wineries, mainly to the two big names in the region, Guigal and Chapoutier. Stéphane, who trained in Burgundy, took over responsibility in 1997 and quickly achieved international recognition with remarkably fine, balanced wines and in particular with his single-vineyard bottlings, which are unmistakably shaped by the individual terroir. Since 2014, the wines have been made in the new winery in Ampuis, which can be considered one of the most beautiful wineries in the Rhône.
