For more than a century, five generations of winemakers have developed the Perrin name, and expanded the territory and quality of the wines. Covering nine hectares, all organically grown, in the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, in over 10 different appellations.
Interview with Céline Perrin, Winemaker
The domaine is situated on an old cemetery, what are the most surprising items that you’ve found in the area?
The Perrin domaine is located on an old Merovingian cemetery. The work to create the cellars unearthed some archaeological discoveries, in particular a plaque of a belt called "Landelinus". It dates from the Merovingian period and is currently on display at the "Musée de l'Homme" in Dijon. Other objects were also found such as fragments of sculptures, skeletons, sarcophagi, and pottery dating from the end of the Roman Empire, the third or fourth century, and the Merovingian period, the fifth to seventh century.
What are the challenges of producing organic wines?
Each year, each harvest is a real challenge for the winemakers, especially for organic wines. The challenge is to bring in a good harvest, as healthy as possible and also of good quality. It is said that a good wine is 90% made in the vineyards. It is only with a good grape that we make the best wines. Therefore, it is important to take care of each vine, but for us it is really a passion and above all a conviction.
