Vincent Girardin was born in Santenay, in the Côte de Beaune and is part of a winemaking family whose origins date to the 17th century (11th generation). Now in his forties, Vincent began in 1982 with only 2 hectares (5 acres) of vines. When his father retired, Vincent took over several additional hectares to which he could devote himself.
Vincent Girardin is a man of conviction. He knows what he wants. He has grasped his profession firmly with both hands. Vincent’s roots are deep in the most prestigious terroirs of Burgundy. He knows every vine, every parcel of land. He also ensures that the very highest quality is maintained by following each wine’s development every step of the way, at all times respecting the most important element of Burgundy – the individuality of its terroirs.
It is this very personal touch that conjures up the richness, harmony and elegance that make Vincent Girardin’s wines so sought-after. Vincent Girardin’s wife Veronique, has worked alongside Vincent at the Domaine since 1994.
