About Frederic Panaïotis
Born in 1964, Frédéric Panaïotis spent much of his time in the small Champagne vineyards of his grandparents as a child. He enjoyed harvesting the Chardonnay grapes and started to learn about wine in their small cellars.
He graduated from the Institut National Agronomique Paris-Grignon in Viticulture & Oenology, and earned the Diplome National d’Oenologue of the Ecole Nationale Superieure Agronomique in Montpellier in 1988. His winemaking apprenticeship included appointments in France and California. He came back to Champagne in 1991 and worked at the Comite Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne, and then for Champagne Veuve Clicquot.
Panaïotis joined Champagne Ruinart in 2007 as Chef de Caves. In this position, he has the responsibility of creating the blends, from the non vintages Blanc de Blancs and Rosé to the prestige cuvees of Ruinart, Dom Ruinart and Dom Ruinart Rosé. He also plays a significant role in the communication efforts of Champagne Ruinart, at times travelling extensively to international markets.
