Price €56.67 75 cl

Domaine Michel Lafarge was created in the 19th century, in Volnay, Burgundy. It is the fruit of a unique family heritage on the Côte de Beaune. Since 1978, Frédéric Lafarge has been managing the estate of his father, Michel Lafarge. It is one of Volnay's most renowned estates, especially since 1997, when the vineyard made the transition to biodynamic viticulture. The entire vineyard was then converted to organic farming in 2000.

Domaine Michel Lafarge covers 12 hectares of vines in the heart of Burgundy. Located in the village of Volnay, Côte de Beaune, the domaine began bottling its wines in 1934. It produces several appellations, mainly Volnay, but also Beaune and Pommard Premier Cru. The grape varieties used on the estate are Pinot Noir for red wines and Chardonnay for white wines.
