• In the Vineyard


Grassing, where grass is sewn between the grapevines, is a pre-condition for a high quality grape. With grassing, the grapevine must seek water from deep in the soil, as the water brought by rain and storms is absorbed by the grass, not by the vine. As a consequence, leaves on the grapevines will not grow as abundantly and the vines do not require as much treatment as they otherwise would. The result is smaller, better spaced and concentrated grapes; a healthier fruit. Grassing is an environmentally-friendly natural technique that contributes to reducing soil erosion.


At Domaine Durdilly, we harvest all our grapes by hand. Selected bunches are placed in small baskets by our pickers and transferred to the winery.

In the Winery

Combining oenological traditions and the most recent vinification technologies for maceration, whole bunches of grapes are used, thereby minimising acidity and encouraging the development of the fruity aromas and flavours that are characteristic of Beaujolais wines. This process is a major factor in achieving the intense floral nose and bright fruity flavours of the Domaine Durdilly wines.

The wine is kept in a cool cellar, where there is a constant temperature.

The 'Beaujolais Nouveau' is an aromatically elegant and fruity wine. The 'vins de garde', or cuvées, are more structured and thus suitable to be cellared
