Dutraive / Domaine de la Grand’Cour
Established in 1969, the Domaine de la Grand'Cour in Fleurie consists of three lieux-dits: Clos de la Grand'Cour, Chapelle des Bois, and Champagne, which make up a total of 9 hectares. The estate was firmly in Jean-Louis Dutraive's hands by 1989. As a leader in organic viticulture and naturally produced Beaujolais, Jean-Louis is a friend to all and is always there to lend a hand or words of encouragement to young growers interested in farming naturally.
