Sustainable


An historic estate with some of the finest parcels of vines in the region, Chateau Grange Cochard has been producing fine wines since 1759. Sarah and James Wilding purchased this formidable estate in 2008 and are actively rejuvenating it to bring it to its full potential and to produce fine world class wines. Chateau Grange Cochard produces small quantities of Morgon from estate grown grapes only. They have some exceptional parcels of vines, the majority being in excess of 50 years old which give complexity and intensity to the fruit. Grass is used extensively between the rows, no insecticides are applied and no artificial irrigation or watering systems are used. The harvest is done carefully and very selectively by hand. Their flagship wine is the Cote du Py with it’s unique bluish-tinted volcanic soil situated literally at the top of the Cote du Py!
