So Xavier settled in Vaucluse at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail to start a fine career as a consulting oenologist in France and abroad, mainly in Australia, South Africa and California. He thus forged a solid international reputation by providing expert advice to more than 200 estates and by participating in the elaboration of prestigious Rhône wines, notably in Châteauneuf-du-Pape where he gradually implemented new working methods.
Discreet, in the shadow of many prestigious estates owners, without ever putting himself forward, Xavier Vignon became highly respected by his peers.
Weary of offering the best wines as an intermediary, little by little, he had the ambition to produce and share his own cuvees. Today that ambition is a reality!
