The Domaine Perraud is ideally situated in the village of La-Roche-Vineuse, a stone’s throw from the famous rocky outcrops of Solutré and Vergisson. A passion for excellence guides the work of this Domaine.
Domaine Perraud grow Chardonnay, Aligoté, Gamay and Pinot Noir grapes on argilo-calcareous marls situated over five different villages. They limit the use of treatments and aim to produce fully organic wines in the near future. In the meantime, they cultivate the soils in such a way as to preserve the very best expression of their various “terroirs”.
Nothing is added to the wines to keep the full expression of the grapes and the terroir. The wines are vinified plots by plots. Wines are aged in stainless steel vats and oak barrels.

The link between the name and labels
