Region: Burgundy, France
Husband and wife duo Bruno and Isabelle Perraud make wine under their domaine 'Côtes de la Moliere' in the northern corner of Beaujolais. Their 8.5ha of vineyard cover Moulin-á-Vent, Morgon, Fleurie and a few plots outside of the appellation. Also, they rent a few parcels just north of Beaujolais, in Pouilly-Fussé and Saint-Véran. In 1989, Bruno accidentally poisoned himself with insecticide and decided to remove it from his vineyard practices after observing the effects on his body. In 2002 the domaine was certified organic. The journey to purity continued as Bruno and Isabel decided to leave behind chemical yeasts, filtration and ultimately the use of SO2.
