About Pierre Durand :

Pierre Durand began his career in the marketing of wine over ten years ago in his native France. To explore the wines of the New World, he travelled to Australia, discovering the flavours of the Hunter Valley. Returning to France, he worked for Chateau Pape Clement, a venerable house producing Grand Cru Classé de Graves reds and whites, as well as Maison M. Chapoutier in the Rhone, winemakers and negociants, most famous for their Hermitage.

Back in Australia he worked for some of the oldest wineries, such as Tyrrell’s in the Hunter and Leasingham Estate in South Australia’s Clare Valley.

With hands on experience of every aspect of the winemaking art, from grape maturation and laboratory testing to final bottling, Pierre is now part of Langton’s team, focusing on arranging sales of Premium Australian and imported wines across Australia and beyond.
