Notes from the Importer: Thibaud Capellaro is a young winemaker established in the much renown wine town of Condrieu. His first wines are very promising, showing he is not afraid to find his own path and venture outside of the comfort zone of the regional conventions in Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu. Thibaud is a first generation winemaker, although he is local to and grew up in the area. After studies in business, instead of pursuing a more standard career path, Thibaud decided to go for his passion – wine – and to create his own winery. He established his own operation in Condrieu following experiences working with winemakers in France (André Perret, Domaine Joblot, Chateau le Devay, Domaine Duclaux…) and in Australia (Adam Foster, Syrahmi). After first renting a basement, he recently moved to a new winery with all the room he needs to experiment and grow.
