The Domaine Savary, unique know-how !
The Domaine Savary, an idea, a desire...
The Domaine Savary is ideally located, around an hour and a half from both Paris and Dijon. It was founded in 1984, the fruit of a happy union between two of the oldest and most venerable Chablis wine-making families.
Francine Savary, originally from Villy, brought with her vineyards and two centuries of family expertise. With her proud heritage, she won the heart of a young vigneron by the name of Olivier Savary.
The Savarys of Maligny (a village neighbouring Villy) also included many vignerons among their number, but the tradition briefly skipped a generation as Olivier's parents decided not to go into the family business. Domaine Savary wines have been served at the highest tables in France for many years.
Today, Olivier Savary devotes his oenological knowledge and expertise as a vigneron to his great passion for wine. With a solid background in wine growing, he is a qualified oenologist with a diploma from the University of Dijon, drawing on his extensive know-how and knowledge to create the finest wines for the Domaine Savary.
Proud of its rich history and heritage, the Domaine Savary today owns 20 hectares of vineyards devoted to various Chablis.
To manage that heritage, Francine et Olivier Savary needed a commensurate structure, and that is why the Domaine Savary now has 1,500 m² of facilities dedicated to his wine-making activity.
Today, the Domaine Savary produces some 200,000 bottles of Chablis every year and exports to 12 international markets (the United States, Russia, Belgium, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Sweden, Brazil, Italy, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia).
The Domaine Savary is committed to methods worthy of its illustrious heritage, and wherever possible this means using meticulous techniques such as sorting tables and gravity-fed harvesting to produce juice of the very highest quality.
The new generation is keen to uphold the cherished traditions of their parents, and Mathieu and Maxime ara already contributing to the Domaine Savary with same care and attention it has always enjoyed.
Mathieu, the elder brother, took a course in International Trade and also holds a Masters in the same discipline.
Maxime studied viticulture and oenology at the Lycée Vitivinicole de Beaune.
Working together side by side, they are an invaluable source of new ideas and inspiration for the Domaine Savary.
