CEO, Tenute Del Mondo, Luxembourg
Christophe Chauvet comes from a wine family who have owned vineyards and been winemakers in the area of Saumur since 1814. As a child, Chauvet worked in the family vineyards and even assisted with a few vinifications of cabernet franc and chenin alongside his father. These experiences formed the foundation for his appreciation for wine and its production, as well as instilling the importance of heritage; something he brings to his work at Tenute del Mondo.
After studying business in Ireland and Bordeaux, he embarked on a career in the beverage industry that included time with Castel Group, Diageo, Pernod Ricard and LVMH. It was with LVMH that he spent 20 years, opening and overseeing extensive business for them in several Asian markets before ending as International Director of Estates & Wines, managing 13 estates worldwide. He has been CEO of Tenute del Mondo since January 2020.
