Cellier Saint Benoit
Cellier Saint Benoit is a wine producer located on the slopes of Pupillin. The local wines from these very famous plots were recognised by decree in 1970, allowing them to add the name of the village to the “Arbois appellation controlled”, first appellation of France in 1936.
The soils of the Jura region offers a wide range of flavours and colours, which is available through 5 grape varieties: Chardonnay, Savagnin, Ploussard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir. Shades of such aromatic and taste diversity that you will inevitably find a wine that suits you!
The Cellier Saint Benoit is the product of 4 generations. During the first years, activity was based on polyculture, the harvest was sold to the wine cooperative of Pupillin.
It was Denis Benoit, 3rd generation, who made the decision to focus 100% of his work in the vineyard and to integrate the work of the cellar. In 2003, he created the Cellier Saint Benoit and moved into the old family farmhouse.
Today, Denis is succeeded by Benjamin Benoit. After studying viticulture in Beaune and experiences in Burgundy and New Zealand, Benjamin wanted to bring his touch to the work of his fathers.
“I wish today to continue the work accomplished by the older generations, by bringing the knowledge that I have acquired during my various experiences,” says Benjamin Benoit.
"In order to fight against the erosion of the hillsides, I work the soil and use small, light and tracked equipment. This makes it possible to preserve a living environment, guaranteeing a wine that best expresses the terroirs."
