Jean-Michel Stéphan through his father and his great grandfather comes from a family of vegetable and fruit growers. In the beginning, the wine estate included 2 hectares in the Côte-rôtie AOC area from which the grapes were sold to a local wine merchant. It was only in 1994 that the first bottles of the estate were marketed.
In 2017, Jean-Michel Stéphan joined forces with his son Romain to create the Maison Stéphan and started to build its future.
The Natural Wine approach comes from Jules CHAUVETa wine merchant and a scientist in Beaujolais. The idea is to create a wine without adding any correcting product for a better digestibility and aromatic complexity of the wines. These wines are made for pleasure and can also be aged.
Nowadays, Maison Stéphan is a family run estate which works with organic winemaking methodsto offer you quality wines well known all over the world.
