Our first guest will be the President and CEO of Château Gassier , a company involved in growing vineyards in this spectacular region for 5 generations, Olivier Souvelain.

Listen to Olivier Souvelain at 4:15 minutes in the show.

 

 

Originating from Barcelonnette (Hautes-Provence) and part of the Provencal nobility since 1421, the Gassier family bought Château Gassier and its 40 hectares of vines in 1982.

Today the vineyard is managed by Georges Gassier, who represents the fifth winegrowing generation of the family, working with the support from his father.

It is only over time that passion, hard work and know how combined, have helped Château Gassier to develop its exceptional potential for excellence.
