Domaine de Montille
Domaine de Montille is among Burgundy's most iconic estates, with a long and fabled history dating back to the 1730’s. While the de Montille name is certainly synonymous with the village of Volnay where the family house still sits, the estate vineyards spread throughout the Côte d’Or, including parcels in the famed Grand Crus of Musigny and Bonnes Mares. After a career in investment banking, Etienne de Montille dedicated himself full time to the domain in 2001 and he has run it ever since. One of his first decisions was to convert the estate to organic farming, starting in 1995. Ten years later, in 2005, he began implementing biodynamic techniques as well. Domaine de Montille is one of the rare Burgundy estates that excels in both reds and whites

In Etienne de Montille's words, "biodynamic farming requires us to be aware of the life cycle of the plants and to embrace energies we cannot explain. We employ biodynamic techniques as a way to support and stimulate the vines, but organic farming is the foundation of what we do."
