THE TEAM

It was the people`s determination and persistence that made the dream come true and brought to light the hidden secrets of Tinos` waterless soil.

Stéphane Derenoncourt

MASTER VIGNERON

A skilled winegrower-consultant whose advisory services are based on an all- encompassing strategy used at more than 140 wine estates, in Bordeaux and all over the world. Convinced of the fact that a purely scientific, oenological approach presents a risk of standardizing the taste of wine, Stéphane Derenoncourt strives primarily to express the character and identity of vines, as a living substance, as well as the soil in which they grow, the climate they are immersed in and the work of men and women who cultivate them.

Gerard Margeon

Gerard Margeon, executive head sommelier for Alain Ducasse restaurants worldwide, discovered at Tinos, along with his friend Alexandros Avatangelos, 20 years ago, a unique, granitic terroir, full of minerality giving him the confidence it will create wines like “liquid pebbles”! It was just what he was looking for!
