Meet the Winemaker

The estate is managed by Yann Chave, who worked in finance until he decided to return to his passion for wine. After being poisoned by an insecticide, he found organic farming in the early 2000s. The estate was certified in 2007 and now boasts 20 hectares in the heart of the Crozes-Hermitage.
In the Vineyard & Cellar

Yann Chave brought real change to the vineyard when he took over from his parents, restructuring and extending the estate through the years. From the mythical Hermitage hillside to the neighboring appellation of Crozes-Hermitage, Yann supports the adoption of organic practices in the vineyard to optimize grape quality. In the cellar, he is renowned for his technical skills, enabling him to achieve perfect balance in all of his wines.
