Join hosts Linda Rez and William Pollard (Wild 4 Washington Wine) for a conversation with the Gilles Nicault, Director of Winemaking for Long Shadows Vintners, a winery that brings together the Rock Stars of winemaking for all the major worldwide wine regions. He is also the winemaker for Long Shadows' acclaimed Chester-Kidder, a Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah blend.
Gilles grew up in southern France and graduated from the University of Avignon with a degree in viticulture and enology. He honed his craft in the fabled hillside vineyards and wineries of Cotes du Rhone, Provence and Champagne. In 1994, already a vintner of rising fame in his homeland, Gilles traveled to Washington State to expand his winemaking.
Impressed by Washington State's vineyards, he stayed in the Columbia Valley, working for Staton Hills and Hogue Cellars before joining Woodward Canyon in 1996, where he stayed until moving to Long Shadows in June 2003. Sharing Woodward Canyon's passion for world-class wines, Gilles soon found Woodward Canyon's founder Rick Small was his ideal mentor and biggest champion. In 1999, Woodward Canyon named Gilles head of enology and production.
Gilles is married to French-born winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla of Forgeron Cellars, an upcoming guest on the Wine Muse show, "The Rise, Fall, and Rise of Chardonnay".

Brian Duncan knows quite a few things about creating culture. He is the founder and winemaker for the BIN 36 wine brand for over 14 years. From 1999 to 2013 he was the partner and wine director for the BIB 36 Restaurant Group. Brian was on the cutting edge in the development of the wine bar concept. When I worked in Chicago for Wolfgang Puck, BIN 36 was my frequent hangout. To listen to Brian talk about wine is almost hypnotic. He shares the same passion for making wine as it does in motivating and developing high-performance teams.
