Johann SpeltyJohann Spelty represents the fifth generation of his family to be winemakers in Cravant les Coteaux, one of the most highly regarded villages in the Chinon AOC. The estate was originally 40 ha, but over the generations, the French inheritance practice of equal shares to all children have whittled Johann’s portion down to 15 ha. Johann Spelty's philosophy is to let the terroir express itself through his wines. Spelty grows cabernet franc, mostly on deep gravelly soil, but he also has a terrace of flinty clay. The estate is in the process of converting to certified organic.
