Laurent Perrachon - Juliénas

The Perrachon family has acquired and extended its domains of La BOTTIÈRE and Les MOUILLES in JULIÉNAS since 1601. The Mouilles climate is one of the most renowned in the area. The La Bottière castle is the place we age and raise our wines in our 17th century cellars.

The Perrachon estate covers 25 ha / 60 acres with 6 crus in Beaujolais. Laurent tenders its vineyards with a special attention to sustainability. The family spirit is very much alive and the future of those domains is already assured.
