Calvet, one of the oldest French wine brands in the world, was founded in 1818 by Jean-Marie Calvet. Eldest son of Dr. Gabriel Calvet and Anne Seriziat, Jean-Marie was born in 1789 in Anse, a small village north of Lyon. From his mother, whose family owned vineyards in Tain-l’Hermitage in the Rhone Valley, Jean-Marie inherited a passion for wine, founding Calvet in 1818 to commercialize the family’s wines. Jean-Marie and his son Octave expanded their business to Bordeaux, opening an office in 1849, and expanded to Burgundy in 1870, to become the largest wine company in France in the 19th and most of the 20th century. While Calvet was sold in New York as early as 1882, its focus was primarily Europe, Argentina and Asia, and so its presence in the USA had all but disappeared by the late 1990s. Sixth generation négociant and direct descendant Jean-Christophe Calvet, and his eldest son Jean-Sebastien Calvet, in partnership with Les Grands Chais de France, are reintroducing Calvet back into the USA market.
