Name Chapoutier present in the Rhône Valley since 1808 year. Distant ancestor Chapoutier - Polydor was the first who began to buy vines, becoming not just a winegrower but wine producer and businessman. The current president of the Wine House - Michel Chapoutier - a representative of the seventh generation of the family, a person charismatic and energetic, curious and visionary. Before becoming a winemaker, Michel traveled. During these visits, he carefully studied the diversity, richness and subtlety of wine. In his farm he managed to combine this knowledge with the rich traditions of the family.
Cote Rotie, which means "roasted slopes" is a tiny vineyard just below Lyon, on the northern end of the valley of the Rhone. Here are planted only Syrah and Viognier. Grapes on these ancient terraces being protected from cold northern winds and the Mistral is poured under the south-east the sun. Wine from the Cote Rotie has deep tannins and a delicate aroma of undergrowth and black fruit.
At the moment M. Shaputier owns one of the most prestigious estates in the Rhone Valley. Wines are produced in the appellations of the Hermitage, Croz Hermitage, Cote Roti, Condrieu, Saint-Joseph, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Trikasten.

Michelle Shapoutier, who became head of the company in 1990, regards as his most significant achievement the transition to biodynamic methods of working in vineyards, since they are the ones that best allow us to reflect the qualitative characteristics of terroirs. M. Chapoutier wines repeatedly won the highest score of 100 points in the ranking of the famous wine critic Robert Parker.
