Created in 1955 by Daniel Rion, this
family-owned estate began with only two hectares (5 acres) of
vines located in the commune of Vosne Romanée, wich wre
left to him by his paternal grandfather. Until 1978, Daniel sold
his wine to burgundian negociants. At the end of the Seventies,
his sons joined their father, bringing new parcels of vines.
A new winery is built, with a larger cellar and a tasting room.
It is at that time that the domaine developed direct sales in
the cellar, gaining a great success with private customers.
Since 1995, after Daniel retired his sons
deal with the vines and the wines.
Today, the domaine consists of eighteen hectares
(45 acres) of vineyard, in eighteen different appellations, in
six villages of the Côte des Nuits and the Hautes-Côtes
: Prémeaux, Nuits Saint Georges, Vosne Romanée,
Chambolle Musigny, Vougeot and Marey-les-Fussey.
Today 800 hectolitres of wine
(100 000 bottles, or approximately 8000 cases) are produced each year.
75% are exported to the United States, Great Britain, Japan,
Switzerland, Benelux, Germany, 15% are intended for the grand
restaurants and 10 % is sold to private individuals, either by
delivery or during reception in the cellar. (How
