The Miolane estate is an ancient family-run business, which has been handed down through the generations. Patrick Miolane took control in 1983, and now works with his daughter Barbara, who joined the team in 2005. They make a perfect pair, each responsible for their own sphere of activity.
The Miolane estate consists of nine hectares of vineyards at Saint-Aubin, a village in the prestigious Côte des Blancs area. Growing mainly white wines, they produce fourteen Saint-Aubin, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet appellations, including premier cru, villages and regional wines.
Patrick and Barbara Miolane work the whole of the estate on lutte raisonnée principles, with the aim of conserving the environment and reducing chemical treatments to a minimum.
The vines themselves are carefully and expertly managed.
