LES FRÈRES PERROUD
For the Perroud brothers, Beaujolais is the birthplace of their childhood and their dreams and holds the core values of their education. Their father left behind a great legacy and as a winemaker taught the brothers respect for people, nature and hard work. Michel, is the eldest of the duo and after years of working as a civil engineer joined Robert, the youngest of four siblings, who had taken the over family estate.
Together the brothers invested in their roots and bought their first 4 acres of vines in Brouilly. Following which they decided to reconstruct a vineyard from a few of their old family plots in Cogny, on clay-limestone, located under the castle of Montmelas, and planted Chardonnay, Viognier, and Pinot Noir, on the same lands where their maternal grandfather grew vines and made wine.
All their young vines are under organic conversion since 2007 with the old vines being cultivated sustainably. Grapes are harvested by hand in small baskets of 50 kg, and our methods of vinification are simple and traditional so the land can fully express its flavors and riches.
