Burgundy, France

The estate was created in the 1950s by Maurice Cornin, my grandfather who exploited the vines and managed a small livestock farm as it was practiced at the time, then Jean-Paul Cornin, my father who resumed farming at at the end of the 1970s, during the growth of Burgundy viticulture. Since 2008, it's up to me, Vincent Cornin, to take on the role of manager and the daunting task of making the field evolve at a time when choices have to be made. Choice in healthier cultivation practices with declining yields at the time when soils are depleted under intensive cultivation.

It is with 7 hectares divided on 3 communes: Chânes, Chaintré and Fuissé that are distributed the 22 parcels of vines worked by Vincent. The estate produces 3 appellations: Mâcon-Chaintré, Saint-Véran and Pouilly-Fuissé which are 100% Chardonnay white wines.
