The Montille family’s winemaking roots in Volnay stretch back to the 18th century, with plots of Pinot Noir in some of the finest terroirs in the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. In 1947 Hubert de Montille took over the family home and premiere cru plots, bringing new vision and steering the winery towards bottling in-house with an emphasis on terroir and traditional vinification.

 

In 1983, his son Étienne joined the team, and began co-managing it with his father in 1995, when together they began organic conversion. A decade later, they also began practicing biodynamics, and in 2006 Étienne’s sister Alix joined as winemaker for the domaine’s white wines. In 2012, the domaine became organic certified.

 

The winery style remains distinctive, with an emphasis on whole cluster fermentations, long macerations, punch-downs at the peak of fermentation, and mostly neutral barrel aging with measured influence from new oak. Each vintage is treated uniquely to focus on finesse, keeping alcohol levels low for longer aging times. Now internationally renowned, the winery is known as equal parts pioneer and benchmark.
