Domaine Lapierre is located in Villié-Morgon, in the Beaujolais region. A family-business for three generations, grandfather Michel Lapierre came to settle in Villié-Morgon at the beginning of the century as cellar master at "Domaine des Chênes". After the Second World War, it was his son who succeeded him. He then sought to develop the sale in barrels to bistros in Lyon and Mâcon. At the end of the 1950s, he began to sell his production in bottles and enlarged the estate by buying a few plots.
In 1973, with a clientele forged by his father, Marcel Lapierre took over the operation which then counted 7 hectares. It was from 1981, under the impulse of Jules Chauvet, a researcher known and recognised in the Universities of California, that Marcel Lapierre decided to vinify without sulfur or yeasting and to cultivate his vines biodynamically: without chemical fertilizers or weedkillers . Today, despite its disappearance, the energy of the domain remains intact. The wine estate, planted entirely with the Gamay grape variety (which is on average 70 years old), now covers 16.5 hectares.
