Michael Shaps
United States, Virginia

Michael Shaps found himself in Virginia in 1995 after being raised in the northeast and then being schooled in enology in France. After establishing Michael Shaps Wineworks near Charlottesville, in he formed a partnership in Burgundy in 2004. In 2012, he bought out his French partner and continues to make sublime red and white Burgundies from prestige appellations: Meursault, Gevrey Chambertin, Volnay, Vosne Romanee, Pommard and Savigny-les-Beaune.

We are very fortunate to have the strong partnership with Michael. He seems to be a man who never sleeps. We enjoy his energy and enthusiasm. Although he is much more famous locally for his Virginia winery, we at RVWC love to drink his Burgundies!

Michael owns a domaine in Meursault that is available for weekly stays. You can reserve the domaine online.
