Founded by Alain Thiénot, ARVITIS is a dynamic family-owned wine company that focuses its vine-growing, winemaking, production and distribution experience on two founding principles: vineyard and human know-how.
At first, it was his intimate knowledge of the terroirs acquired through extensive experience as a grape broker in Champagne that encouraged Alain to create his own eponymous Champagne House in 1985. His entrepreneurial spirit quickly led him to venture into other prestigious winemaking regions, first Bordeaux and more recently California.
He then brought together a group of Champagne and wine houses with deep-rooted and shared convictions: the greatest wines are born when talented humans interpret prestigious terroirs whilst in balance with nature.
A company with resolutely family values, ARVITIS represents a group of dedicated wine professions who tend some 560 hectares of various estates. Passionate and complementary, the teams express their talents and strive to continuously produce great wines and sell them all over the world. Creating exceptional wines, trading fine wines from Bordeaux and elsewhere, a specialist online wines store … ARVITIS boasts a unique, varied and high-end product portfolio.
Constantly evolving, currently at the helm are his children Garance and Stanislas, who are continuing the company’s development with the same energy: internationalisation, sustainable development, digital transformations… With a young, dynamic and heavily management team that respects traditions, ARVITIS continues to inspire ambition and innovation. Daring to benefit from its independence to always move forward.
The story of ARVITIS may have started recently but the company has been very busy.
Over the years, every milestone has helped create a wholesome ecosystem where Houses and teams benefit from a balanced and evolving foundation on which to develop.
