Cave Poulet et Fils (winery)
As a good wine grower, Emmanuel perpetuates the know-how passed on from father to son over four generations. Expect a warm welcome and the opportunity to discover Emmanuel's wine production: Clairette and Crémant de Die and Châtillon-en-Diois vintages.
In the family-owned winery, Emmanuel is the fourth of his generation to produce wine.
Alain his father expanded the Poulet domain, increasing its size from 1,5 to 15 hectares. He also played a part in the development of the Ancestral Method at a time, in the 1960’s, when the process was not entirely fixed. Emmanuel benefited from his father’s know-how and chose to expand the family business by focusing on quality control to improve clients’ satisfaction and has been developing an international client base.
