"Our domain is above all a family adventure"

Notre domaine est situé à Villers-la-Faye, dans les Hautes Côtes de Nuits sur les hauteurs entre Nuits-St-Georges et Beaune.

Il s’étend sur 22 hectares : 3 hectares en vignes basses en appellation village et premier cru et 19 hectares en vignes hautes et larges en appellation régionale autour de notre village.

Our domain is all about a family adventure: for three generations now, we have been sharing the same love for soil working and the same passion for the vineyard and the wine it produces, constantly improving quality in total respect of terroir, nature and sound tradition. We are lucky enough to benefit from Jean’s anecdotes, his advice and his discreet comments that are always to the point. (Jean is Danièle’s father).

Danièle has always maintained a tight bond with the domain she decided to take over in 2008 aiming at developing it. Her first winemaking campaign took place in 2009 and gave a superb vintage. When she took over the estate, Danièle intended to match the quality of her wines with a responsible and sustainable vine culture.

Day after day experiments, tests, meetings and exchanges enabled Danièle to enrich her initial family experience and turn to a type of vine growing that was protective and environment friendly from the vine-plant to the bottle.

The two values shared by Daniele and her four-employee staff are their profound respect for nature and their skills that contribute to the full expression of the grape varieties and terroirs. They are passionate and trained workers, fully involved in the scheme. They bring their dynamism, their experience and ideas.

" In our job as vigneron, we have to be humble, curious and inventive, we also have to be adaptable and persevering, to exchange ideas and help one another, indeed Mother Nature often reminds us of these values "

"We pay special attention to the training and maintaining of our parcels"

En 2021, après trois ans de test sur une grande partie du domaine, nous avons concrétisé notre conversion en agriculture biologique. Nous continuons nos essais et comparatifs sur les semis et travaux du sol. Nous testons l’utilisations de tisanes et d’huiles essentielles.
Les apports d’amendements sont réfléchis en fonction d’analyses de sols et de pétioles, de la vigueur et de l’historique de chaque parcelle. De même la fréquence des traitements est déterminé en fonction de la pression des maladies (mildiou/oïdium).

We see to favour biodiversity by maintaining dry-stone walls, hedges, woods and bee-hives.
