Domaine des Grandes Bruyères is located in the heart of the Beaujolais region, about 800 meters south of the Brouilly appellation, in Saint-Etienne-des-Oullières. Owner Jean-Pierre Teissèdre comes from a family that has been growing grapes since 1885, and in 1990 he received this property from his father. Viniculture being a family affair, Jean-Pierre has gradually been joined in the business by his sons Julian and Jean-Baptiste. Over time the estate has moved towards using more traditional techniques, while simultaneously embracing organic farming, and became certified organic in 2010.
Grandes Bruyères has 13 hectares planted to vines today, with an average age of 50 years. Their red, rosé, and white grapes are farmed without the use of weed-killers, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers, allowing the terroir to fully come through in the wines. According to them, “the earth lives and expresses itself through our wines, each year according to the climatic conditions, our vines give us a unique product, which we shape, sculpt, like the artist who composes….” The Teissèdre family’s legacy of winemaking, combined with their passion for the land, has allowed them to create wines that are works of art.
