Lorraine/Vin de France

Located in Bulligny, a small village in Lorraine, about 30 kilometers southwest of Nancy, Maison Crochet is a family winery running an organic conversion vineyard of 5 hectares.
Wilfried Crochet, their oldest child, takes the succession of the winery in 2016. Wilfried passed his oenology grade from the Bordeaux institute and his internship at Paul Jaboulet Ainé. After some experiences in Russia, Greece and Australia and five years in Champagne, Wilfried felt it was time to go back home.
The wines are produced under “Vin de France” appellation which allows him more freedom. Low intervention, the wines are made under a natural winemaking process.
