Pierre Desroches - Château de Vergisson

Pierre and Stèphanie Desroches represent the new and young generation of wines from the region around Solutrè on the south side of Burgundy which is particularly famous for its Pouilly-Fuissè and Saint-Vèran. The couple started in 2006 with a harvest of 500 bottles of wine that were handed out to friends and acquaintances. Both are children of distinguished wine families from the area and therefore have a strong connection with the region and the wines from here. In 2012, Pierre and Stèphanie moved into the old Château de Vergisson where they have now installed the winery and the Cave. They grow their grapes on only seven hectares of vineyards spread over about 30 pieces of land in the area. Currently they bottle between 15,000 and 20,000 bottles a year divided between Pouilly-Fuissè, Saint-Vèran and Macon Solutrè. What remains of the proceeds goes to the cooperative but that is very little and expected to soon be nothing more....
