Jean-Marie Calvet has a passion for wine, it was his destiny. Born in 1799 in a small village near Tain l’Hemitage, he grew up there, in one of the most significant French wine area: the Rhône valley.
During his childhood, he gave very often a hand to his father, Pierre Calvet, in the family-owned vineyards instead of playing with boys of his age. He confirmed his passion for wine at the age of 19 when he decided to set up the Calvet Company and travelled through France to learn from each wine area and to become an uncontested wine expert.
Well known brand of reference for its quality, constancy and reliability, Calvet’s signature is appreciated in more than 110 countries.
