About the winery
Jean Berthet-Bondet, like his wife Chantal, does not come from a long line of winemakers. Jean decided very early that he did not wish to follow this particular path, and so pursued a course in agronomy at Montpellier, where he met Chantal. Instead of following the traditional period of military service required in France, Jean became a "cooperante" and worked as a researcher in Nepal, where he learned how to better recognise zebu (wild oxen), buffalo and yaks! He completed his period of working the land in 1985 with an apprenticeship and then settled at Chateau-Chalon.
