Winemaker:  Emmanuel Guillot-Broux
Bio: Emmanuel and his two brothers make some of the finest wine in all of Burgundy. The vineyards have been organic since the 1950s but were only recognized as Certified Organic in 1991. They grow Pinot Noir, Gamay, and Chardonnay across three villages in Macôn. Following the traditions of their grandparents, they are shepherds of the land, growing their grapes responsibly and producing wines with as little manipulation as possible. They believe that good wine is made by the vines, not in the winery.
