ABOUT THE WINERY

Maxime Graillot and his winemaker and associate Thomas Schmittel are amongst the leading lights in the Crozes Hermitage appellation today. In 2003 the young and determined Maxime grasped the gem of an opportunity and purchased 7 hectares of Crozes Hermitage in Beaumont-Monteux (in the warmer, dryer south-east sector of the appellation) in the form of Domaine des Lises. In 2004 he produced just 6000 bottles of Crozes. Enter friend and winemaker Thomas Schmittel who teamed up with Maxime in 2006 to establish a small negoce company Equis. (Thomas cut his winemaking teeth with Cote Rotie’s René Rostaing no less, heading up his Languedoc estate, Domaine Puech Noble)
