Domaine de la Monette, a Sustainable Approach in Lyon
Domaine de la Monette is a family wine property in the heart of Lyon, the family has been running the winery for generations. Struggling for atime with the wine business, all sales came to a halt in 1996 until a Dutch couple purchased the domain in 2007 to fulfill their dreams to run their own winery. The primary objective of the new couple’s wine production is to maintain the sustainable approach for producing high quality wines. Enhancing biodiversity in the vineyard is the aim for good soil revitalization and minmimal intervention in the cellar helps create simplistic and elegant wines. Organic farming is practiced throughout all of their vineyards and the diverse subclimates are often celebrated by blending cuvées from each vineyard site.
