About Kewin Descombes

At the ripe old age of 21, Kewin produced his first vintage in 2013. He currently rents 1.15 hectares within the Beaujolais appellation along with 1.6 hectares of Morgon from a retired vigneron who’d previously rented the vines to his father Georges (whom we also import). In addition, Kewin purchased 1.2 hectares of 85-year-old Morgon vines in 2013 to produce his Vieilles Vignes offering.

If you’re wondering why father and son (not to mention Damien) do not work together as a family, the answer is two-fold. The first is economic: inheritance laws in France tend to be intensely costly for the benefactor, not to mention an insane amount of administrative paperwork.

And if you’ve ever dreaded family get-togethers during the holidays, you can all too easily relate to the second reason: getting along with family is not always easy, and in some cases impossible. While Kewin gets along with his stepfather Georges Descombes and his stepbrother Damien, the three have very strong personalities; having their independence gives them the breathing room necessary to avoid butting heads.
