Chateau de La Greffiere is a typical "maconnaise" house and an old winery (restored to become a museum) built in 1585. The underground cellar was built in 1789, then the castle in 1830, a testimony to a successful wine production. Finally in 1924, the Greuzard family purchased the estate and has continously restored it. The estate is located in La Roche-Vineuse, in the Macon area, in South Burgundy. This very-hilly area houses different appellations such as Aligote or Macon La Roche-Vineuse. The chateau works with four Burgundian grape varieties: chardonnay and aligote for white wines and pinot noir and gamay for red wines. It's not a coincidence that they use these grapes—they match perfectly with the soil to make quality wine. As evidenced by the multitude of AOCs in the area, the grapes possesses various characteristics and offer a range of wines that are equally diverse and elegant, such as the Bourgogne or Saint-Veran. Thanks to this privileged geographical place, Chateau de La Greffiere proposes no less than eight appellation wines.
