Domaine Méo-Camuzet is located in Vosne-Romanée, in the Côte de Nuits, in Burgundy. For more than four centuries, the members of the Méo family have devoted themselves to growing vines and making wine. They come from the Burgundian village of Selongey, north of the Côte d'Or. The founder of the estate, Etienne Camuzet, was an early 20th century politician based in Paris, who offered parts of his estate to a variety of sharecroppers to cultivate. Eventually it passed into the hands of Jean-Nicolas Méo in 1989, who realised that extensive sharecropping meant that only a small portion of the vines were under the estate's control. He has put in place a long-term strategy to recover the plots from the sharecroppers with the aim of eventually having fruit grown on the estate and bottling under his own label, Méo-Camuzet. Méo-Camuzet now has 14 hectares of vines, cultivated according to the principles of organic farming, but without certification.
