A privileged location
Château Grand’Grange is located in Le Perréon, in the south of Mont Brouilly and therefore at the beginning of the Beaujolais crus geographical area.
The vineyard extends over a dozen hectares facing south and south-east around the castle. Sunshine is therefore optimal.
The slopes are moderate and the granitic soils are predominantly sandy.
The plot is part of the Protected Designation of Origin (A.O.P.) Beaujolais Villages. The two varieties of grapes grown are Gamay for the reds and Chardonnay for the whites
At their arrival at Château Grand’Grange in 2009, Per and Marianne became aware of the strong identity of the vineyard and the potential of the estate. Their two watchwords are excellency and diversification.
In 2010, they acquired a plot in A.O.P. Fleurie, Clos la Madone, of which they have the monopoly.
In parallel, they are renewing certain plots with Viognier and Syrah, two grape varieties from the Rhône. They also plant white Sauvignon, a rare variety in the region. These wines benefit from the Protected Geographical Indication (I.G.P.) comtés rhodaniens.
In 2019, with the arrival of a new technical manager, Andrea Pugliese, new challenges are launched : more visibility and notoriety and a gradual conversion to viticulture that respects biodiversity.
The philosophy of this young oenologist is to create a harmonious relationship with the vine. Take the time, observe and adapt to each vintage.
The actions, mostly manual, are always reasoned, thus allowing the terroir to fully express itself.
