Eve & Michel Rey
Domaine Michel Rey is a small domaine in Vergisson where organic work is done. Eve and Michel Rey run this small domaine together in the beautiful village of Vergisson between the Roche de Vergisson and the Roche de Solutré. They do all the work in the cellar and the vineyard themselves and therefore know every vine. As a winemaker, Michel is extremely eager to learn and Eve is a huge perfectionist. That is probably why the wines of this relatively young winery have improved considerably in recent years. No insecticides or pesticides are used, the soil is worked all year round with respect for nature and the grapes are picked by hand and transported in small boxes. The price / quality is very good for their entire range.
The vineyards are sandwiched between two gigantic rocks: Roche de Vergisson and the famous Roche de Solutré. Eve comes from an old winemaking family in Julienas (Beaujolais), where they also own 1 hectare of vineyard. She does everything together with her husband Michel, who learned the trade from his father-in-law. As a winemaker, he is extremely eager to learn. He is one of the fast rising stars of the Maconnais. Although Michel will be the last to admit that and fortunately that is also reflected in the price. He prefers to work all day in the vineyards.
