The History of Domaine de Echellete

Built at the end of the 19th century, Domaine de Echellete in Bourgogne was destined for great viticulture practices. The construction of the wine cellar at Domaine de Echellete took place in one of the wings of the house. However, the attack of Phylloxera in the early twentieth century reduced the vineyard area; it was reconstructed in parts and survived until the early 1950s. The decades follwing saw a reduction in planted areas for varied reasons such as lack of human resources, rural exodus, uneven quality of wine produced and lack of interest in Mâconnais wines. Wine production declined with higher speed between 1950 and 1975. However, after the drought of 1976, the wines at Domaine de Echellete began to sell better, especially their spectacular Chardonnay.
