Founded in 1731 in Beaune by Michel Bouchard, Bouchard Pere & Fils, is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy, perpetuating tradition for nearly 3 centuries and 9 generations.
In 1775, Joseph Bouchard acquired his first vineyards in Volnay in the famous "Les Caillerets" climate and started to develop the family's vineyard holdings.
During the French Revolution, property belonging to the clergy and nobility was confiscated and put up for sale. Joseph's son, Antione Philibert Joseph Bouchard, seized the opportunity to extend the family's vineyard holdings in Beaune including the famous "Beaune Greves Vigne de l'Enfant Jesus."
This desire to build up an exceptional estate in Cote d'Or endured through the generations and acquisitions in the best Villages were added throughout the 19th century and again in the early 20th century.
