The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is relatively recent. In 1982, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers based in Santenay since the 17th century, decided to strike out on his own, and began producing wine with only 2 hectares of vines that he had inherited from his parents. From his earliest youth Vincent had a passion for working with vines, and great respect for the potential that they represent.
The quality of his wines was quickly recognized all over the world. Maison Vincent Girardin offer prestigious appellations coming from 9 villages in the Cote de Beaune. All of the Girardin Grands Vins are made from vines managed according to sustainable agriculture principles.
