Gilles Nicault

Director of Winemaking & Viticulture

Gilles Nicault has served as director of winemaking and viticulture since Long Shadows' inception. He oversees winery operations and collaborates with Long Shadows' celebrated vintners from around the globe to ensure that each winemaker's vision is realized in the vineyard and the cellar, a position he describes as his "dream job". 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 wineries of Côte du Rhône, Provence and Champagne. In 1994, already a vintner of rising fame in his homeland, Gilles traveled to Washington State to expand his winemaking skills. Here he worked for several top Washington wineries, including Woodward Canyon, before joining Long Shadows in 2003. Seattle magazine named him Washington State's Winemaker of the Year in 2016.
