JEAN-LUC COLOMBO | Cornas, France
Jean-Luc Colombo is a man of warmth, energy, and passion with an insatiable appetite for the good things in life. His dedication to fine food and wine came from his mother, a talented chef in Marseille. Jean-Luc's subsequent decision to graduate as an oenologist and create wines that would match his mother's cuisine was inevitable!
With his wife Anne, also an oenologist, he created the "Centre of Oenology of Cotes du Rhone" in Cornas in 1984 and has ever since been a consulting winemaker for some of the best domains in the Rhone Valley and Provence.
A world-acclaimed winemaker, Jean-Luc is also well-known for his conviviality and generosity. His hospitality is legendary, and he is always ready to entertain and surprise his friends with unforgettable meals. He is equally a man of deep convictions who can always be relied on to defend French gastronomy's rich cultural heritage.
Today, Jean-Luc Colombo wines are served on the best tables around the world; the wines have received numerous accolades by Decanter, Wine Spectator, Bettane et Dessauve. Their only daughter, Laure, joined the family Domaine in 2010. Viticulturist, Oenologist, and world traveler, she is full of life and brings with her fresh energy and sensitivity to the family estate.
