Domaine Perraud   Domaine Perraud Logo

Until 2005, the Perraud family was one of many making their living from growing grapes for the local cooperative. Encouraged by his parents, Jean-Christophe Perraud, then 24, began to make and bottle wine from the family's 25 hectares of Bourgogne, Macon and Saint-Veran vineyards and sold them on the local market until 2009.

Produced from what the Perrauds describe as young vines (both the Chardonnay and the Aligote are between 20-25 years old), the wines show remarkable elegance, purity and complexity at modest price tags.

Domaine Perraud is a fine example of a young vigneron striking out on his own with the family's vineyards to create what will soon be one of the Maconnais most respected Domaines.
