Background Winery

Domaine Jean-Michel Gerin is not one of the famost winegrowers and the oldest properties in the Northern Rhone Valley. Far from it. In fact, the estate was created in 1983 by Jean Michel Gerin, although it was not until 1987 that he began to bottle and sell their wine.In 1996, Domaine Jean-Michel Gerin added to their holdings with the purchase of land on La Landonne. 

Today, Domaine Jean Michel Gerin owns 12 hectares of vines in the Cote Rotie appellation. The domaine is going to remain a family affair as he is now joined by his two sons, Michael Gerin and Alexis Gerin.
