The PERRACHON name appears in Julienas history as early as 1601. The Perrachon family acquired the domain of la Bottière, in Juliénas, in 1877. Then came the Domaine des Perelles on the Romanèche-Thorins territory, at the feet of the Moulin-à-Vent hills. The Domaine des Mouilles, now the heart of our operations, was acquired in 1989. It is the heart of the Julienas appellation, benefiting from the best exposure and the best soils. Recently, we added smaller parcels in Chénas, Fleurie, and Saint Amour.
Today we harvest grapes on six Crus (30 hectares) : Julienas of course, but also Morgon, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chenas and our latest addition, Saint-Amour, and also Beaujolais-Village rouge and Beaujolais Blanc (6.5 hectares). Today, the 7th generation of winemakers carries on its ancestor’s tradition with the same aim: to express the essence of the terroir.
