Dominique Piron's family has been living in Villié-Morgon for 14 generations. The understanding of their wines begins first of all with their family and terroir, so they will tell you their story... Here, the vinification is traditional! Wishing to constantly adapt to the environment, Maison Piron preserves the most elegant finesse, the best tannins and the purity in its wines. By vocation, given the large proportion of plots that can only be exploited manually, they seek to satisfy their vines with all possible natural levers by planting, for example, grasses, flowers, shrubs and other plants and trees of the local flora.
Maison Piron has been a family business for 14 generations. Dominique Piron's ancestor was born in 1590 in Morgon, during the reign of Henri III. He produced and sold Gamay. The estate has been through the ages, as river transport became land transport. In 1723 the House sent its first vintages to Paris. Today the vintages are also shipped by air, but if the means of transport changes, the vines and those who care for them remain from the same family. Recently the estate added a beautiful page to its history by joining forces with a winemaker, Julien Revillon, who was growing with Jean-Luc Colombo in the Rhone Valley. A combination of knowledge, terroirs and history that promises to be a treat!
Gamay, originally comes from a cross between Pinot Noir and Gouais Blanc, a Croatian grape variety imported by the Huns in the 4th century. Gamay is a delicate grape variety, sensitive to its environment. We can therefore play with this fabulous grape variety depending on the soil where it is grown. Between the meteorological variables, and the winegrower's hand, it is therefore possible to shape the characteristics of the vine, the grape and the wine.
