Wine has often brought our family together for meals or journeys. This common passion has grown with time and has given a meaning to our careers Pierre obtained his diplomas in Tain l’Hermitage. He went to work in London, a market open to wines from all over the world, then moved on to Dublin where he created a Michelin starred restaurant and gained the title of best national sommelier. On returning to France, Pierre joined his brother Vincent, France’s second best young sommelier, who graduated from the Tours school and trained with Paul Bocuse for two years.

In this land steeped in history, the Cistercian monks of the Abbaye du Petit Pontigny in Chablis cleverly planted the right vines for the rough climate of northern Burgundy. This vineyard, centred on Chablis, stretches from the Tonnerre area in the East to the Auxerre area in the West. Two predominant types of grapes are grown : Chardonnay, also know as « Beaunois » in Chablis and of course Pinot Noir on the steep slopes of Irancy, Saint-Bris and Tonnerre.
By visiting wine cellars in the region you will discover its history, its land and its people. There are plenty of hiking paths and bike routes as the vineyard is extensively signposted. Whether you are with friends or family, the key words are hedonistic life-style, good food and good wine !
