For more than five centuries, the winery covering 9.5 hectares is transmitted from generation to generation; here the vine and the wine has always been a family affair. The cellar was constructed by Vivant Gille (1877-1938). The cultivation of the vine and the vinification process are according to Burgundy tradition.
Vine is known in Gaul since the fourth century BC, when the Romans invaded the territory. A few centuries later, its development was favored by the Catholic Church for the celebration of Mass. In the region of Nuits Saint Georges, the tradition of the vine cultivation goes back to the eleventh century, with the arrival of monks from the Cistercian Abbey in the nearby village of Vougeot.
At that time, the hills were covered with forests. Thanks to the hard work of the monks, this was gradually replaced by vines from North to South.
