The Mâconnais white wines produced by Maison Auvigue from its home in southern Burgundy are its calling card, the apotheosis of the vineyard’s major appellations.

This family-run business, which started life trading in wine, fell deeply in love with the terroir of Burgundy as it gradually made the move towards growing vines. Four generations later, the estate now boasts 8 hectares stretching out over the land of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation.


As pioneers of the plot-by-plot approach, members of the Auvigue family have always been deeply committed to retaining the authentic character of the climats. Today, these traditional winegrowers are continuing to do their utmost to respect the terroir, starting with the conversion to organic farming. Alongside the grapes harvested from the fields of vines, other carefully-selected bunches are collected from partner winegrowers to add to the cuvées vinified in situ. What’s so distinctive about this range? It brings together wines that are exclusively white from the following appellations: Pouilly-Fuissé and Pouilly-Fuissé Premier Cru, Mâcon-Solutré, Mâcon-Fuissé, Saint-Véran and Viré-Clessé.


By far the best way to discover this myriad of noteworthy vintages is to drop in to the estate. After a brief tour of the vineyards overlooked by the kindly silhouette of Roche de Solutré (a limestone escarpment), head for the wine cellars in the old Romanesque church in the village of Fuissé. Two vat rooms and almost 300 barrels have found refuge under the stone vaults of this amazing site!


This temple to vinification is the perfect spot to learn more about how the region's iconic wines are made. There’s even a sensory workshop where you can discover the diverse aromas that are so typical of the white wines and find out more about the maturation process in the oak barrels.


For the tasting, the spotlight focuses on four to six wines produced on the estate. In the intimate surroundings of the vault, the distinct personality of each cuvée brings to light a different aspect of Maison Auvigue’s craftsmanship. It’s a heritage that showcases all the glory of the Mâconnais… for you to enjoy one sip at a time!
