After having sold the commercial company in 2020, while keeping the family vineyard…

It’s a new adventure in Beaujolais

it’s a new adventure in Beaujolais

“After a first life of fifty years as a winemaker in Morgon – my first harvest declaration going back to 1971 -, I sold in the summer of 2020, the trading company “Maison Piron”, which I had created in 1987, but keeping the family vineyards in Morgon.

Beaujolais is in full revival – Beaujolais is back! – So I decided to dedicate one last little slice of life to this beautiful profession, in another place, but still in this beautiful vineyard, as a simple winemaker, looking for the “best” rather than the “most”.

The story started by my ancestors continues today in a different way, with about 35 ha of vines.

A historical site

“We are now a few kilometers from Morgon, still in the heart of the Beaujolais Crus at the Vieux Bourg in the village of Corcelles, in a historic property, the “Clos du Vieux Bourg”.  A Clos of 8 ha in which the two main buildings are the old church “Saint Pierre de Corcelles” with its presbytery. In this church, we have installed our cellar for the 2021 harvest. An atypical but simple cellar where modernity meets old stones, a cellar with a soul and energy.

We are going to enhance this place, give it life and make it a remarkable place in Beaujolais.”
