Domaine Denis, Pernand-Vergelesses - Burgundy

Domaine Denis Christophe Valerie

Domaine Denis Pere & Fils is located in Pernand-Vergelesses, a picturesque village in Côte de Beaune and covers 31 acres of vines in Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny-lès-Beaune, Aloxe-Corton and Chorey-lès-Beaune. In 1940, Raoul Denis, who was the winemaker of the prestigious Hospices de Beaune (as his father and grandfather had been) decided to take over a secondary job with his wife and to cultivate the 5 acres of vines he inherited from his family. In 1972, they created the company Denis Père & Fils with their first son, Roland and his wife, Annick.  

In 1992, Roland handed the torch to Christophe, the youngest of his sons. Today, the domaine is run by Christophe and his wife Valérie.

The Vine Cultivation is traditional and balanced. Christophe Denis thinks this choice of methods is a good alternative between the “all chemical” and “organic” approaches. It is based on their experience and observation of the vines and the local conditions, allowing them to calculate accurately the optimum usage of organic fertilizers, to reduce to a minimum the application of phytosanitary products in the fight against pests (mildew, odium, grape-worm) and to best preserve the vineyard’s balance by the working of the soil (plowing or grassing).
