Domaine De Vernus
Established in 2019, Domaine de Vernus is located in the heart of Beaujolais within vineyards in the municipality of Régnié-Durette at the hamlet of Vernus.
The property is steeped in history and is located on the heights near the Cadole and Vergers plots. It has a panoramic view of Mont Brouilly and the hilly Beaujolais countryside.
The domaine covers an area of more than 12 hectares with meticulously selected plots according to their location, quality of the soil and health of the vines.
At Domaine de Vernus, Frédéric Jametton and Guillaume Rouget have joined forces to produce red wines, mostly Crus, using a healthy and sustainable viticulture approach: Beaujolais-Villages, Régnié, Morgon, Chiroubles, Fleurie and Moulin-à-Vent.
Winemaking and Sustainable Viticulture
All the wines of the estate are made from this unique and emblematic grape variety of the region: the gamay noir au jus blanc. The vines are 55–60 years old on average and are traditionally pruned in goblet style, most of them not trellised.
The work in the vineyards is part of an environmentally friendly approach that preserves the soil and biodiversity. The estate has been awarded the HEV3 label, a recognition of its sustainable viticulture practices. A programme of planting shrubs and hedges is underway around the vines, which are regularly inspected to check the condition of the vines, the soil, the vigour of the plant, the crop cover, etc.
