Domaine Guillot-Broux is a family-owned proporty that has been consistently farming in an organic fashion since the beginning. The domaine has been certified organic since 1991, definitely one of the pioneers in the move to go organic. The current owners like to tell how their grandfather started the first organic vineyard in Burgundy in 1954, when the rest of the world was still enamored with the promises of fertilizers and pesticides before the side effects of additives started ruining the vines.
The enchanting names given to the various climats by Burgundians carry poetic meanings throughout the centuries. Les Genièvrières means "the place of junipers".
