Born in Chambolle-Musigny, André VAUCHER had a passion for rowing, of which he was French champion in 1927.
It was in the heart of his native Burgundy that he developed a second passion for wine. Following his sporting career, he decided to fully devote himself to it by founding VAUCHER PÈRE & FILS, a wine merchant's house specializing in the great wines of Burgundy with the aim of providing wines of the highest quality to the most demanding tables in France.
In very close contact with the best Domaines de Bourgogne and with the most renowned restaurateurs, VAUCHER has become the specialist of high end Burgundy wines.
In addition to his gold medal at the French rowing championship, he has also achieved great success with his wines in many renowned restaurants.
Between Auxerre and Mâcon area, the vineyard of Burgundy extends over only 28,841 hectares, and produces 84 "Appellations d’Origine Contrôlée" (controlled origin designation). Its wines belong to the most prestigious appellations in the world and are being crafted by women and men across six different wine regions. Our wines reflect those exceptional terroirs, located between hilly sights, monumental cliffs and sunbathed slopes.
The Beaujolais vineyard unfolds its countless hills on 55 km from South to North. Its leitmotif is "diversity" - both in the landscape with the crus in the northern area, the Beaujolais-Villages in the center and the Beaujolais mostly in the Southern area. These landscapes have in commun the gamay, a dark grape varietal with white juice. As to the wines, they prove to be surprisingly different as well, and full of sublety.
Every French wine which is not classified IGP or AOP (protected designation of origin) will be welcomed in the great family of "Vin de France" wines. This category offers a wide freedom of expression as it allows the exploration of both very renowned varietals in a original approch but also original, unknowkn and even ancient terroirs. This freedom of expression combined with the richness of terroirs across France and our know-how results in fruity wines, full of aromas and which will definetely surprise you.
