The Cellar of Buxy's Winegrowers
The Cave des Vignerons de Buxy was created thanks to the determination of the Cote Chalonnaise winegrowers to pool their talents in a common project and make their wine, tend to their vines and sell and market their produce together: The story behind this adventure is one of an human and social endeavour stretching back over 80 years.
270 members, 120 families work the plantings that go to make up this vineyard, perpetuating the techniques of their forefathers. Working together, these men and women uphold the values which are at the root of quality and respecting the environment. Thanks to the fruit of their labours, the passion for their profession and their deep attachment to the soil, these winegrowers have managed to bring out all the character of their land.
The grouping of the many little family plantings, all inspired by the same values of solidarity, sharing and conviviality, resulted in the creation of advanced production facilities geared to the demands of the market.
The growing and harvesting of the grapes is rigorously monitored and controlled. And so the team of specialists using modern grape-growing and wine-making techniques can rely on their perfect knowledge of what is going on in the field to develop authentic wines which capture the taste of the land of the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais.
The Cave des Vignerons de Buxy is the result of collective enterprise and the work of 120 wine-growers and 40 employees, and sells 7 million bottles per year for a turnover of 29 million euros. Thanks to its local, national and international renown the la Cave des Vignerons de Buxy has become the ambassador for the wines of Southern Burgundy.
