The name Chapoutier has been present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor Chapoutier was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of estate wine grower to that of a viticulturist, wine producer and businessman. The pioneering spirit already wellplanted in the family continues to exist several generations later.
