The journey of a winemaker

WITH FRANÇOIS LEGRAS

François François

François Legras never fails to read the daily papers in the morning nor does he ever fail to keep up with another morning ritual: that of tirelessly inspecting the family vineyards.

François Legras never fails to read the daily papers in the morning nor does he ever fail to keep up another morning ritual: that of tirelessly inspecting the family vineyards. With his trademark dedication, he works his way through the vine rows whilst reflecting on the future, his craft and of the possibilities for evolution of the house. His visions and perspectives have a strong influence on the work carried out by his sons.

He carefully and respectfully encourages them to “do as they please as long as they do it well”.

Aside from a few years at boarding school in Reims and when carrying out his military service, nothing has ever taken him away from beloved village. He was always keen to help his father in the vineyards and fields and learnt the skills of a winemaker and cellar master from him from the age of 16.

Born into a family with four centuries of grape growing experience, he has never left Chouilly, the place where he was born in 1937.
