history
The Summum wines are the fruit of a meeting and a mutual passion of two men for a job, as fascinating as difficult, the mix of wisdom and youth, the success of the transmission of knowledge from a generation to another and the continuity of a know-how.For more than 20 years, Luc Pirlet has been a famous winemaker in Languedoc. 60 years old, pleased of what he has done in his professional life, eager to spend more time with his family, Luc has tried to convey his experience and his passion for the business.After having worked few years in marketing, Christopher Cholot, nick named "Cholot" decided to go back to his farming roots and to become a winemaker. When he met Luc in 2013, it was a good match between these two men, soil-lovers, Epicurien spirits and looking for new challenges. After 2 years working side by side, Vintage 2015 was the first Vintage of Summum Wines.
