The Chantons have been cultivating unique wine varieties with creativity, passion and tremendous talent for three generations, since 1944 to be precise. In the late seventies, Josef-Marie Chanton, son of the founder Oskar, reintroduced the Lafnetscha. In the eighties, he vinified the Himbertscha, the Gwäss (in French: Gouais), the Eyholzer Roter and the Plantscher – four other varieties that have almost been forgotten. This pioneering work and talent lives on in the family business. Since 2008, his son Mario Chanton has been the winery’s head. He actively contributes to the philosophy behind the wines and to the family’s oenological knowledge. Moreover, Marlis Chanton, Josef-Marie’s wife, is in charge of the design and administrative work.
