The young stellar object MWC297 is a B1.5Ve star exhibiting strong hydrogen emission lines. This object has been observed by the AMBER/VLTI instrument in 2-telescope mode in a sub-region of the K spectral band centered around the Brγ line at 2.1656μm. The object has not only been resolved in the continuum with a visibility of 0.50±0.10, but also in the Brγ line, where the flux is about twice larger, with a visibility about twice smaller (0.33±0.06). The continuum emission is consistent with the expectation of an optically thick thermal emission from dust in a circumstellar disk. The hydrogen emission can be understood by the emission of a halo above the disk surface. It can be modelled as a latitudinal-dependant wind model and it explains the width, the strength and the visibibility through the emission lines. The AMBER data associated with a high resolution ISAAC spectrum constrains the apparent size of the wind but also its kinematics
