Domaine Huet’s founder, Victor Huët, was a Parisian bistro owner. In 1928 Victor settled to the town of Vouvray in France’s Loire Valley and purchased the first of his great vineyards, Le Haut-Lieu. Gaston understood clearly that quality must come first and starts with great vineyards. He went on to purchase the 8 hectare “Le Mont”, considered his best vineyard and the region’s “Grand Cru” vineyard in 1957.
All grapes are harvested by hand, which enables picking by successive tries. Each tri being a separate pass by the workers through the vineyard, ensuring only the best bunches of ripest grapes.
