Domaine Michel Delorme was founded in 1820 & had been in the same family for several generations, dating back to the 17th century. The Domaine is located in Vergisson, a small, traditional winegrowing village in South Burgundy, 10 km from Mâcon and famous for its "Roche" (rock). Winegrowing traditions in this area date back to the monks of Cluny.
The vineyard is composed of 4.3 hectares (10.6 acres) of land, with 3.9 hectares in Pouilly-Fuissé and 0.4 hectares in Saint-Véran. Approximately 60% of owner Michel Delorme’s production is sold in bottle and 40% sold in bulk to négoce. Production is around 200 cases of Saint-Véran and 1,300 cases of Pouilly-Fuissé. The vineyards are cultivated on slopes around the Rock of Vergisson, with a south-southeast exposure. Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint-Véran wines are both 100 % made from the little golden-seeded Chardonnay grape.
