Gilles Rey has been involved with our vineyard almost since the beginning. Previously working with Patrick Léon (our consultant oenologist), at Mouton Rothschild for 18 years, he now applies his extensive knowledge here in Biac as well as other carefully selected vineyards across the world.
If you believe in the magical aptitudes of horse whisperers and dog whisperers, then Gilles Rey is the ultimate “soil whisperer”… One could walk the vineyard with him a thousand times and still have more to learn.
Like with all perfectionists, his expectations can sometimes be demanding! However, the very visible transformation of our vineyard since 2006 could not have taken place without him.
