Bouchard Pére & Fils dates back to 1731 when Michel Bouchard set up shop in Volnay, buying and reselling barrels of wine. In 1775, his son, Joseph, acquired the first parcel of vineyard for Bouchard Pére & Fils when he purchased an estate in Volnay and a house in Beaune. Today, the domaine encompasses 130 hectares of vineyard in the heart of the Cote d’Or, with 12 grand cru holdings and 74 premier cru holdings. Since 2005, Bouchard Pére & Fils has been equipped with a state-of-the-art winery, The Cuverie Saint-Vincent. The 10-metre-deep cellar has earth walls, providing natural ventilation, temperature and humidity level controls, with no mechanical manipulation necessary.
