Anthony Thévenet is a member of  the new generation of vigneron defending the purity and legacy in Cru Beaujolais. In 2010, Thévenet inherited his grandfather’s vineyard in Villié-Morgon: a selection of vines ranging from 40-150 years old. While Thévenet released his first vintage in 2013, he has honed his skills and passion for vin naturel for 6 years in Decombes’ and Foillard’s while continuing to develop his own wines. In 2014, he inherited a parcel in Côte du Py Morgon. This vineyard is in the heart of Beaujolais and widely considered one of the truly magical sites in all of Beaujolais. The following year, Anthony added to his holdings by securing 0.7 ha of vines in Beaujolais-Villages and in 2017 he started farming 2.5 ha of Chénas.
