Passionate about wine and mountain, Benoit & Bastien created Emy Vintners back in 2010.
Bastien worked previously for Inbev, then for the pretigious Champagne & Wine houses Rotschild et Vranken Pommery as an account manager in the Savoie and Haute Savoie Region.
Benoît discovered the wine trade in an Oddbins branch in South-West London, then worked for Champagne Laurent-Perrier in England. He came back to France as sales and marketing Director of the ski lift company in Tignes.
They decided to join forces in 2010 and gradually have built a comprehensive range of wines primarily for restaurants, catered chalets and wine merchants in the Alps.
The business goes now over the Savoie boundaries as the carefully selected italian wine range is distributed nationwide.
