The tradition of winemaking at Maison Chapoutier has been carried out for over 100 years. Michel's distant relative, Polydor Chapoutier, first purchased vineyards in the Rhone in 1879. Since then, the family has continued to acquire vineyard land and has expanded as far as Australia.

Syrah, Grenache, Marsanne, and Viognier are harvested from several appellations throughout the northern and southern Rhone, but Chapoutier's top class of wines come exclusively from Côte-Rôtie, Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph, Cornas, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The Hermitage Syrahs and Marsannes, all single site bottlings, are widely recognized as Maison Chapoutier's top wines.
