The Cellars since 1798
The cellar located under the house was constructed in 1798 and holds the french oak barrels in which the wine is aged. The property has its own winery, bottling facility and storage facility. This allows for control over the wine from start to finish. The bottle store room is thermo regulated allowing the wine to mature in the best way possible.
A Familially Domaine
It was Paul and Henriette Chevrot who gave their blood sweat and tears to establish the family domaine. In 1973 the management was passed to son Fernand and wife Catherine, their passion and love for wines from this region have shaped the domaine. The passion for wine has also been passed onto sons Pablo and Vincent. Pablo started working for the domaine in July 2002 having completed his studies. Pablo married Kaori, a Japanese wine taster in August 2003. Their son Angelo was born on the 28th Jaunary 2004, which was a great vintage for the Chevrot family! Vincent the younger of the sons joined the family domaine in 2007 after completing studies and gaining wine making experience in France and around the world. Vincent lives with his partner Aurelie on the estate and in Febuary 2007 along came Paul their first son.

The Environemental Protection
Love for vines and wine, and the awareness of the need to respect the earth and its terroir have led the Domaine to adopt organic horticultural methods, this includes cultivation of some vineyards by horse to ensure minimum compaction of the earth. The elimination of chemicals and the adoption of organic horticultural methods not only preserves the earth but improves the vine health and improves the quality in the resulting wine.
