Pierre Chavin is not the name of one single character. Pierre is a commun french name. It means stone in French and is a reference to the soil, the terroir. Chavin sounds like a couture brand name. It has been borrowed to the Fashion industry. It contains the word Vin in it, meaning wine, the essence of the winery. All together, it makes a very pleasant Winery name, easy to pronounce even for the one coming from far away. Labor in the vineyard, all the work made to produce wine can’t be sum up by one or two people. It is the accumulation of human’s passion and know how. Pierre Chavin is not one person but us all !
