A TRIBUTE TO OUR ROOTS
The Pion family is known in France and throughout the world of wine for its integrity, passion and devotion. This has enabled them to distribute the most famous estates of Burgundy, since 1950.
Today Pion “le meilleur du vin” represents more than 300 family estates. Oliver and Christian Pion have decided that after sixty years of distributing wines for others, to also become winemakers themselves. In doing so, they wish to transmit their family values through the production of an eponym range of fine Burgundy wines.
After some trials with the 2012 vintage, the assortment named “Racines Croisées” (Crossed Roots) was launched in autumn 2014 with the 2013 vintage. The goal of this production is to offer a refined selection of vine parcels predominately located in the Côte d’Or, with flawless quality and an affordable price point for the consumer.
Terroir and sharing, inseparable from wine, respect for the vine and the men, are values common to both Pion brothers.
