Winemaker Jean-François Pellet is a third-generation wine grower born and raised in Switzerland. Working alongside his father, who has managed the same vineyard for 30 years, Jean-François always knew what he wanted to do with his life: make world-class wine. His experience and reputation for meticulous winemaking in Switzerland and Spain brought him to Napa Valley, where he worked for four years.
Amavi’s Seven Hills vineyard was named one of “The 10 Greatest Vineyards of the World” by Wine & Spirits (2004)
Amavi’s Les Collines vineyard was named “Vineyard of the Year” at the Washington Wine Awards (2015)
