Domaine Daniel Rion & Fils
Created in 1955 by Daniel Rion, this family-owned estate began with only two hectares (5 acres) of vines located in the commune of Vosne Romanée, wich wre left to him by his paternal grandfather. Until 1978, Daniel sold his wine to burgundian negociants. At the end of the Seventies, his sons joined their father, bringing new parcels of vines. A new winery is built, with a larger cellar and a tasting room. It is at that time that the domaine developed direct sales in the cellar, gaining a great success with private customers. Since 1995, after Daniel retired his sons deal with the vines and the wines. Today, the domaine consists of eighteen hectares (45 acres) of vineyard, in eighteen different appellations, in six villages of the Côte des Nuits and the Hautes-Côtes : Prémeaux, Nuits Saint Georges, Vosne Romanée, Chambolle Musigny, Vougeot and Marey-les-Fussey.
