Romain GOUVERNET

I was born in Avignon and have spent most of my life in the Avignon and Chateauneuf-du-Pape area. When I was a student I used to help with the wine harvest in the famous vinyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape where I fell in love with the beauty of this world-famous wine growing area and its wine. My passion, knowledge and enthusiasm for winemaking, plus my intimate knowlegde of this beautiful area, allows me the opportunity to offer discerning clients a unique in-depth wine experience.
