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 took root early and came from his mother, a talented chef in Marseille. With his wife Anne, both oenologists, they created the “Centre of Oenology of Côtes du Rhône” in Cornas in 1984, and has ever since been a consulting winemaker for some of the best domains in the Rhône Valley, Provence and Bordeaux.
Jean-Luc’s fulfillment of a childhood dream came with the purchase of his first vineyard, a small plot of old vines planted on a granite hillside overlooking the village of Cornas. The 1987 release of Jean-Luc’s first vintage of Cornas “Les Ruchets” was a great success, taking the French wine world by storm, and becoming the first in a long series of vintages of what is universally regarded as Colombo’s iconic wine.
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 ably defend the rich cultural heritage of French gastronomy.
Jean-Luc and Anne have passed on their love of good food and good wine to their daughter Laure, who joined the family domain in 2010. A viticulturist, oenologist, and world traveler, she is full of life, and brings her fresh energy and sensitivity to the family estate.
