Vignerons de Pere en Fils Depuis 1877.

<strong>Domaine Perrachon</strong> is one of the largest independent wineries in Beaujolais. Based in Julienas, the family ownership of the estate goes back to 1877, now 6th and 7th generation work side by side. Part of the property is still planted with very old vines, 80 to 100 years old. There are 3 Estates covering 26Ha with  and in addition they can also work as a negotiant.

"We are the sixth (Martine and Laurent) and seventh (Maxime and Adrien) generation of Perrachon. We pursue the work of our ancestors producing wines the traditional way. Julienas history already mentioned the PERRACHON name in 1601. The Perrachon family acquired the domain of la Bottière, in Juliénas, in 1877. Then came the Domaine des Perelles on the Romanèche-Thorins territory, at the feet of the Moulin-à-Vent hills. The Domaine des Mouilles, now the heart of our operations, was acquired in 1989. It is the heart of the Julienas appellation, benefiting from the best exposure and the best soils. We added smaller parcels in Chénas, Fleurie, and Saint Amour in 2005 and Beaujolais-Villages, Saint Amour and Pouilly- Fuissé in 2018.

This makes us the independant winemaker in Beaujolais with the most comprehensive list of crus.

Our red and rose wines come from a single varietal, the gamay. Our vines are pruned short, in "gobelet" and "Cordon de Royat". Part of the property is planted with very old vines, 80 to 100 years old. Our white Beaujolais is made of chardonnay, the traditional varietal of the great white Burgundies.

We are sustainable farming certified (called in France HVE). Moreover, we do organic process in 60 % of our vineyard (The vineyard is adapted) and the 40% in sustainable farming (old vineyard or steep slopes or both).

Here, the harvest is still done by hand. Traditional Burgundy winemaking techniques are combined with the carbonic maceration typical of Beaujolais. Fermenting lasts 6 to 8 days for our "Villages" up to 18 days for our "Terroirs selections". The wines are then maturing slowly in our 1702 cellar, to the bottling, starting around Easter."
