Agronomist Engineer and Winemaker graduated from “Escuela Nacional Superior de Agronomía de Montpellier” in 1989, Hervé Birnie Scott has been working since then as a Winemaker in distinguished wineries from France, California and Australia.
In 1991, he joined Bodegas Chandon, part of the LVMH-Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy Group, as responsible for managing the Winery and Vineyards for Still Wines.
In 1994, he was appointed Bodegas Chandon Director, position which he held until 1998, leading the creation of Baron B Rose (1997), Baron B Brut Nature and Terrazas de los Andes. Terrazas de los Andes was born to produce high quality varietal wines. Its first vintage was released to the market in 1999.
In 1999 when Estates & Wines (the Wine Division of Möet Hennessy) was created, he was appointed Winemaking and Operations Director for the Division, which consisted at that time of eight wineries spread in three continents around the world. From Mendoza he coordinated the elaboration, style definition and assets development.
Since 2002, he took a new challenge and came back to France to hold the position of Moët & Chandon Operations Director in Champagne, then in 2006 he assumed the same role for the whole Moët Hennessy Group. In April 2008, he focused back on his passion for wine, being appointed Estates & Wines Operations Director and “Estate Manager” for Numanthia Winery (Toro, Spain).
Connoisseur of Mendoza terroir, a place very close to his heart, he decided to come back to Argentina in 2009 to focus on the management of the three wineries of Moët Hennessy in Argentina: Chandon Argentina, Terrazas de los Andes and Cheval des Andes.
Herve is married and has four children. He is passionate for the mountain and its activities such as climbing, trekking and kayaking. He climbed twice the Aconcagua.
