The winery

Founded at the beginning of the century, in 1920, the family-run farm has been handed down from father to son for more than three generations, enjoying a privileged position in the heart of the Beaujolais vineyards, more precisely in the village of Villié- Morgon.


Located in that part disputed between Burgundy and Rhône, the vineyard extends over 16 hectares belonging to the renowned area of Morgon. It was since 1981, under the impulse of Jules Chauvet, a well-known researcher, that Marcel Lapierre decided to vinify without SO2 or selected yeasts and grow his vines organically. Today, despite his death in 2010, the energy of the estate remains the same: since 2005 his sons Matthieu and Camille Lapierre have in fact joined the company alongside Marcel, understanding how to run the company according to the dictates of natural agriculture.


"Proud of the work done by my family and the terroir of Morgon, I want to continue the tradition of natural wines started by my fathers and bring my contribution to the development of the domaine," reports Matthieu proudly. Small gem: the cuvee "Le Cambon", coming from an 80-year-old vineyard of the Château Cambon, taken over in 1995 by his father Marcel and today carried on entirely by his wife Marie.
