In a magnificent setting, next to our very old grape press, we will be delighted to share our passion with you.
Domaine de Fond-Vieille is a small family-run wine estate covering 14 ha in the heart of the magnificent Pierres Dorées (golden stone) region in Oingt, a village listed as one of the most beautiful in France. Dominique tends his vines using eco-friendly techniques, putting quality at the fore, while respecting the environment. Picking is by hand in the warm friendly atmosphere of yesteryear. Vinification is purely traditional. Dominique welcomes individuals and groups, he loves to tell of his profession that is also his passion. See you soon for a tasting of our wines in our tasting cellar.
The estate is in the heart of Pierres Dorées (golden stone) Beaujolais, at the foot of the Chappe telegraph tower. Our work is respectful of the vines and the land (Terra Vitis), allowing us to bring you wines with personality and good cellaring potential.
Set in the middle of the vines, we will welcome you to the heart of our magnificent Pierres Dorées (golden stone) home. Invisible from the outside, our long vaulted cellar opens its doors to you for a tasting. Here is where unforgettable and cherished memories have been made with people from inside and outside France over the last 37 years.
Domaine Chasselay has been set on this land in Châtillon, in the Vallée des Pierres Dorées (golden stone), 25 km to the north of Lyon for nearly 6 centuries. Love of vinegrowing has bound this family together from generation to generation. The wines from Domaine JG Chasselay are made using organically grown grapes, this guarantees respect for the environment.
Come and discover the diversity of the countryside around the Medieval village of Châtillon. Our estate was founded under the French Empire in a hamlet called La Colletière. Here you will be able to taste our produce made using organically grown grapes.
You will be given a warm welcome in the 19th century estate buildings by the Brondel family. We have been vinegrower-winemakers from father to son for 4 generations. Find out about their vines and top quality wines.
Two families of vinegrower-winemakers from father to son have joined to form our estate:
-The PASSOT family, from Chiroubles and Fleurie. Jean-Benoît PASSOT, our great grandfather, was the first winemaker, born in 1867.
-The COLLONGE family, from Villié-Morgon. Antoine COLLONGE, farrier, bought a wine estate in 1828.
-Vinegrower-winemakers since 1978, we created Domaine PASSOT COLLONGE in 1990 with vines from our forefathers in four Beaujolais Cru appellations: Morgon, Chiroubles, Fleurie and Régnié (the prince of Crus and the most recent of the Beaujolais Crus).
-We were among the first vinegrowers to use integrated, eco-friendly tending techniques in our vineyards from 1992.
-We were joined on the estate by our son, Jean-Guillaume, in 2005 when he passed his BTS (vocational degree) in viticulture-oenology. He has gradually increased the range, with vineyards in Côte de Brouilly, Brouilly and Brouilly ‘’Pisse-Vieille’’ (the excellent and only climat or named vineyard in this Cru).
We craft a range of 6 Crus that each carry the stamp of the geographic formation they come from and traditional vinification in small batches. A cuvée for each plot.
With our choice of vintages, we can please all tastes.
Be prepared for a few surprises when you taste our wines; their structure joins forces with the unequalled fruitiness given by Gamay grapes when they come from the land they call home.
Convinced that eco-friendly, integrated vine tending is the right way to go, we started using these methods in 1992. In preserving natural balance and the biodiversity of our terroirs, we are respecting both the environment and the consumer. Since 2018, all our wines are TERRA VITIS certified.
If you can come, we’d love to give you a tour of our estate for you to find out more about our profession of vinegrower-winemakers. You can be sure of a very warm welcome in our Bed and Breakfast on the estate, set in the heart of the Beaujolais vine slopes.
Three generations of winemakers have worked this 11 ha family estate, always true to tradition.
Domaine de Bellecombe welcomes you in a green setting between vines and forest. You’ll love the cellar that was dug out of the granite in our Beaujolais house. To prolong your stay in our lovely vineyard, we have a gîte for four at your disposal.
