The Winery

Located in Burgundy, at the heart of the Chalonnaise coast, the Tupinier-Bautista domain is a family wine-making exploitation, which cultivates the vine on the Mercurey appellation. Implanted on hills, this appellation is one of the most important of the Burgundy.  It covers a surface of production of 650 hectares of vines in village and Premier Cru appellation.
The history of the domain began in 1770. Installed on the small hamlet of "Touches" ( Mercurey), at the edge of the  church of the XIII th century, the Tupinier family are invested in wine  world. Very attached to this hamlet and to the Mercurey appellation, she wished to develop its vineyard on this only terroir
In 1997, it is with passion that Manu Bautista succeeded to his stepfather Jacques Tupinier. While preserving the know-how of the previous generations and by bringing a touch of modernity, Manu leads with pleasure this domain of 11 hectares of vineyards today. Vines lovers, he restructures its vineyard with delicate Pinot Noir to give fruity aromas and freshness in its wines.
In 2016, we built a new winery, for to bring of the functionality and modernity in the domain. Situated on the heights of Touches, this new winery composed of a new wine store and a new cellar. The cellar was dug into the rock for to keep a constant temperature and to optimize the ageing of our wines in barrels. A tasting cellar has also been arranged, with an authentic frame for the visitor who can take advantage of the view and taste our wines.
