Domaine Auvigue New Release

The name ‘Auvigue’ was already known in 1629 in the vineyards of Beaujolais and Mâconnais. Today, this dynamic family business is operated in the 3rd generation and follows closely the traditional methods of Burgundian viticulture.  Since 1946, the winery is located in a converted mill, the Moulin du Pont, in Charnay-lès-Mâcon. The grapes come from family estates covering 6 hectares, including 2 that have been organically farmed for over 20 years, in the Mâcon-Solutré and Pouilly-Fuissé appellations. 


Jean-Pierre Auvigue in the cellar

 

To allow each parcel to present the unique microclimates, the brothers Jean-Pierre and Michel Auvigue, 3rd generation winemakers, always adapt the vinification process to the requirement of each plot. The wines are only lightly filtered before being bottled to retain all the elements required for the development of their true Burgundian nature. Jean-Pierre and Michel are now passing on their expertise and the estate to their nephew Sylvain.
