The oldest known winemaking ancestor of Dominique Piron was born around 1590 AD in Morgon, under the reign of King Henry III.

Morgon is known for its patchwork of soils, which include granite, clay, limestone, schist, silex, and volcanic deposits, all of which lend a unique earthy, mineral-driven flavor to wines like this delicate rose. Made from organically farmed Gamay, the wine is light and beautifully balanced, with notes of cherry and strawberry flowers. It tastes like summer. ‘Nuff said.
