Finding quality wines at value prices is the quest of many sommeliers. The wines of Pierre Dupond are just what many are looking for – they offer quality that is a steal at this price.
For more than a century, the vision of Pierre Dupond has been to produce authentic and high quality wines, to extract the best of the different terroirs.
The story of Dupond began in 1860, when Antoine Dupond began selling wines from his properties in Beaujolais to local bistros and cafés. At the time, hard manual work was the occupation of local towns, such as Saint-Etienne, a mining town, and Lyon, with its silk workshops and trade. These local communities provided a large clientele to cafes and famous Bouchons where most wine was purchased. Dupond had to meet high demands for thirst quenching and lively wine that workers craved.
Now more than a century later, the tradition continues under Hervé and Philippe Dupond. The Duponds know precisely the terroirs and vineyards of the region and is able to select the best plots. The wines are all created to be delicious, thirst quenching and an tremendous value.
The selection of vineyards is done following long term partnerships in the region. Chardonnay comes primarily from Languedoc-Roussillon; Pinot Noir from Auvergne and Drôme.
The wines are vinified in stainless steel and made with attention to detail rarely found at this price point. Sommeliers with experience at some of the best restaurants in the world participate in blending to provide an extra level of quality. The proof is in the bottle – vintage after vintage, the wines are fresh and delightful for everyday enjoyment.
