Domaine Grapillon d’Or
The CHAUVET family goes back to around 1630, half way through the 17th century and the first winemaker Chauvet appear around 1703.
Created in 1806, the property has remained in the hands of the Chauvet family to date.
For the past 40 years, Bernard has managed and successfully developed the wine estate. He is now assisted by his daughter, Céline CHAUVET (for 20 years), who manages the delicate process of vinification as well as the business management of the estate.
Since 1893, the date when the Chauvet Family received its first “gold medal” at the General Agricultural Fair in Paris, the estate’s wines have been regularly rewarded.
