The Manoir has, since 1850, been a domaine. Frederic’s brother, also works in the vines. When Jean-Frédéric’s great, great-grandfather bought, there were 8 hectares including fruit trees, animals, cereal and vegetables, but really not so many vines. Today the domaine is 35 hectares of vines. Principally it is Beaujolais Villages, but they also have 6 hectares of Fleurie, 3 of Moulin à Vent, 3 of Julienas and 4 of Brouilly, plus 20 hectares in Beaujolais Villages and some Beaujolais Blanc. Damian, Jean-Frédéric also buys a little Morgon and St.Amour. So, in a decent year that’s 250,000 bottles, all commercials here: 60% exported to the USA, Canada, Japan, China and others.
They only started to commercialise their own production in 2000.
