We have really kicked our international wine selections up in the past two years at the Wine House. There is so much to learn about wine from across the pond including the family stories behind the brands. Lionel Gosseaume is the son and grandson of winegrowers. He grew up in his family’s vineyard, but spent most of his adult life as far away from the vines as possible. In 2007 the call of the vines proved too strong and he returned home and acquired his own 22 acre vineyard from his father’s friend, Jean-Claude. Jean-Claude lived for his vines and he still works in the vineyard today, teaching Lionel what he has learned in a lifetime in winemaking.
