Nestled in the heart of the “Golden Triangle” of Burgundy, Maison Ropiteau Freres has very much become a Cotes de Beaune and Meursault wine specialist. Initially built in 1848 as Wine Merchant House by Jean Ropiteau with his brothers-in-law, the business geared towards selling of wines rather than producing. The trade boomed, thanks to the arrival of the railway to the region that same year. However, with the consumption decline due to WW2, great-grandson, Auguste, had to divest - he purchased a cellar and focused on his own creations. The Ropiteau style is all about uniqueness. Working with each vine as a unique individual and respecting its unique character in order to enhance its qualities. Today, 30 winegrowers work solely for the estate – they, along with wine brokers and the winemaking team, examine and appraise the wines each step of the way to ensure that the Ropiteau way is preserved in each bottle.
