Tom Fitzpatrick has trained in More-St. Denis with Hubert Lignier, New Zealand, California and Oregon before he and his wife started their own winery  – Elevee Winegrowers.

With five acres in vines they are a unique study in terroir, as each site has the exact same farming and winemaking, to allow the terroir to express itself. Each bottled as a single vineyard.

Élevée is French for “high” a nod to their high elevation vineyards and their love of mountain climbing.
