ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Located in the village of La Roche-Vineuse in South Burgundy, we are winegrowers, passionate about our profession and the terroirs of the Mâconnais and the Beaujolais that we’re cultivating. Olivier Merlin’s first contact with the vines was in 1977. That year, he harvests in a Mâconnais estate and discovers an atmosphere, a family spirit. His passion for the winegrower’s profession began then.
