Since 1957, Cave des Hautes-Côtes, the group behind Nuiton-Beaunoy, has been proudly growing and making wine in Burgundy, France in the slopes of the Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Les Hautes-Côtes de Beaune and Hautes-Côtes de Nuits. At the time, the winery consisted of a small group of ten or so winegrowers who had no idea how big their venture would become, however they knew they would be stronger together. They created a cooperative under a model of solidarity and authenticity, wanting to work with winegrowers that shared a sense of community and passion about the region and their vines.
Today, they remain the only cooperative wine cellar in the Côte d’Or region, now with 80 winegrowers, and are proud of their history. The wine growers associated under the Nuiton-Beaunoy name grow their wine across many vineyards in the region to ensure the best grapes from Burgundy are used for their wines. The winegrowers in Cave des Hautes-Côtes support a responsible environmental policy, promoting respect for the vines, the growing region and its people. Therefore, they’ve committed to the “Vignerons Développement Durable” (sustainable development for wine growers) initiative, which promotes a viable, fair and sustainable approach. This label guarantees that economic growth takes place with respect for the environment, as well as for social concerns and impact on the region.
The winegrowing culture on which the Nuiton-Beaunoy wines are based is a close collaboration between the growers and the technicians, all of whom share the same passion for vines and wine. Their objective is to patiently craft the wines which will serve as ambassadors for their region. Everyone works together, sharing the same spirit, while also being committed and creative, allowing them to adapt and reinvent themselves without ever denying their roots.
