There are few names as revered in the Northern Rhône as the name Graillot. It was in 1985 that the legendary Alain Graillot, who after working with Jacques Seysses at Domaine Dujac, came back to his home in Crozes-Hermitage to start his own domaine. His devotion to the art of making hauntingly delicious Syrah has resulted in a highly dedicated following around the world. Luckily for us, Alain’s eldest son Maxime Graillot continued the legacy started by his father, and is also blazing his own trail in winemaking excellence. Practicing organic.
