Growing up in the small village of Manot, Jean-Marc spent his younger years helping out in the family’s quarry and forestry businesses before spending his teenage years in the family’s wine cellars. After graduating at the top of his class and filled with the desire to follow his family’s rural heritage, Jean-Marc completed a National Engineering Diploma in Agriculture at the prestigious Ecole Supérieure d’Agriculture de Purpan in Toulouse. There he focused on winemaking and viticulture, and spent an entire year researching the relationship between vine water stress and grape maturity. 

After completing his education, Jean-Marc gained international experience in Sonoma County and in the Gansu Province of China, before returning home to France, where he joined the Chateau Puy Guilhem in Saillans as Winemaking Director for the next 10 years.

Seeking new challenges and keen to play a part in building the international reputation of the Okanagan wine region, Jean-Marc moved his young family to the South Okanagan. He joined the Culmina team as Vineyard Manager & Winemaker in 2016, where he has been pushing boundaries and crafting highly awarded, unique wines from our region’s exceptional terroir ever since.


As a member of the Culinary Team Canada, Jeffery won the Gold Medal on the world stage in 2012. He was also awarded BC Chef of the year in 2009. Jeffery has been an active member of the culinary community for a number of years, formerly being President of the BC Chefs' Association as well as being a culinary instructor at Vancouver Community College. 

It’s fitting that Chef Jeffery who grew up in Vancouver and learned to ski at Grouse Mountain, has returned to the mountain bringing his passion for the outdoors and wealth of culinary expertise.
