This domain of the Côte de Brouilly appellation has been in the hands of the Geoffray family since 1877. Today Claude-Edouard and his wife, Sonja are at the helm. They’re young and dynamic and have been pushing what was already a great domaine to even greater heights, keeping the winning formula in the winery but moving to organic viticulture and ploughing their steeply sloping vineyards by hand (with the assistance of the old-school winch system).
The organic conversion process is staggered across the domaine but by the 2023 vintage, everything will be certified.) Claude-Edouard and Sonja are well-travelled and made wine around the world during their studies – she is Swiss and has a family domaine in Valais. They met when studying at Changins, which is a renowned viticulture and oenology school in Switzerland (the only place you can study both).
