Pierre Callot

Since Louis Callot’s birth in Avize in 1784, six successive generations have been involved with vines and wine, but it was not until 1955 that Pierre Callot created his own brand. As he grew this domaine he became short of space, and in 1971 he purchased the Piper Heidseck house and vineyard buildings. Since 1996, Thierry, the youngest of his four sons, has run the family
business. 7 hectares are currently managed and cultivated using integrated pest management with the aim of practicing sustainable winegrowing methods which respect quality, people and the environment. “We take great care of the vines and grapes the whole year round, working meticulously and mainly by hand.”  ~Terry Theise
