Robert Drouhin was the head of Joseph Drouhin from 1957 to 2003 and was the driving force in its development. He was one of the first in Burgundy to believe in the future of Chablis and created a domaine there between 1968 and 1972. In 1988, his reputation as a pioneer was confirmed when he created Domaine Drouhin in Oregon.
He was also one of the first to introduce "culture raisonnée" (doing away with pesticides) at the Domaine, even if it meant questionning time-honored methods.

Through all these years, Robert Drouhin and his wife, Françoise, have handed down ethics, passion and knowlege to their children.
