ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
The story began in 1980, when Jocelyne and Michel Paquet created Domaine des Valanges. The estate, located in Davayé, a small village in the Mâconnais region, which initially covered 6 hectares, continually grew. Recognized for its Saint-Véran, the estate’s wines were soon being exported around the world. Over the years, Jocelyne and Michel transmitted their love of the vineyards and winemaking to their three sons, Jean-Baptiste, Mathieu and Camille.
In 2014, the estate expanded with the acquisition of a 2-hectare estate in Solutré-Pouilly, mainly in the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. The brothers then took over 10 hectares in the Mâcon appellation, which extended the range and brought a new dimension to this family adventure. It was also an opportunity to express the diversity and richness of the terroirs of the Mâconnais region, from north to south.
In 2016, the three sons took over the 12-hectare family property. Today, Camille manages the vineyards and winemaking, while Mathieu & Jean-Baptiste are responsible for the marketing and sale of the wines. The new generation is working hard to perpetuate the family history, by acquiring new vines and moving to a less interventionist approach to winemaking, respecting the principles of organic growing. Lovers of their Mâconnais terroirs, the three brothers share a common vision: to produce high-quality fine Burgundy wines and make them accessible to all.
Strong in their convictions and their attachment to the land, the estate is committed to a viticulture that respects people, nature and the soil. Gradually, the estate is converting to ORGANIC AGRICULTURE. 2021 will mark the first certified vintage.
The start of 2019 marked a turning point as the estates were merged into one: “Famille Paquet”. By bringing the range together under a single label, the brothers want to build the image and reputation of the wines crafted by the “Famille Paquet”.
