Meet the winemaker!
When he took over the winery, Jean-Baptiste Cluzeaud decided to conserve family tradition and savoir-faire in his approach to winemaking. This domain got its start in 1792, and it is a hidden gem in the back-alleys of Volnay. Its cellars are magnificent, and Jean-Baptiste has kept the ancient wine press used by his ancestors. We recommend a visit during the harvest to get a chance to appreciate it all.
