Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

Known as the ‘wild man of Pouilly’ as much for his appearance as for his ideas, Didier Dagueneau was widely recognised not only as a brilliant winemaker but also the best producer in the appellation.

“Dagueneau is one of the great winemakers of our generation.”Denis Dubourdieu, consultant to Châteaux d’Yquem, Cheval Blanc and Margaux

Unlike many winemakers, Dagueneau didn’t start his career in wine, but instead racing sidecars. Following two nasty falls, his life took on a new direction and he set out to make the best Sauvignon Blanc possible and to redeem the reputation of Pouilly-Fumé.
