Jean-François Ranvier and François Dauvergne teamed up to create a very unique approach to building a brand focused on quality from vine to finished wine. In 2004, despite the partners not yet having a chateau, incredible funding or vines of their own, they approached the best of the growers with enthusiasm for an idea. Jean-François had worked with over 50 cellars in the Rhone valley and together in 2004 the partners approached the best of them with their idea. Entrusted with the vineyards best parcels of terroir, Jean-François and François consult with each property on all aspects of vineyard management, proper harvesting techniques, and winemaking processes in the cellars. Agreements would be made prior to harvest on the proper price for the grapes or finished wines and Dauvergne Ranvier would purchase 100% of the yearly production especially dedicated to the. It is a completely collaborative effort that ensure the properties will be selling their grapes and Dauvergne Ranvier can be guaranteed quality and volume.
