The Bichot family winery is one of the most influential producers in Burgundy. The family settled there in 1350 and in 1831 Bernard Bichot started a wine business in Monthélie, on the Côte de Beaune and his son Hippolyte bought the first vines in Volnay. Son Albert Bichot gave the family business a new impulse at the end of the 19th century and settled permanently in the city of Beaune, where it is still located 5 centuries later. At that time the wines were already famous worldwide.
Since the early 1990s, Albéric Bichot has been at the helm as a new generation. While he fully respects family traditions, he is completely focused on the future. The company has now grown to more than 100 hectares of vineyards over 6 estates on each unique domain, from north to south Burgundy. By having the viticulture, vinification and maturation in the cellars completely in-house, Albert Bichot characterizes its own style. Refined and seductive with the ambition to produce the best wines in the world.
