BACKGROUND

Located in the heart of the Côte-Rôtie vineyards near the village of Ampuis, Domaine Jean-Michel Gerin was created in 1983 with vines inherited from his father and grandfather. In 1987 they began to bottle and sell as Jean-Michel Gerin. In 1988 Gerin made his first purchase of vines in La Grandes Places and added to his holdings in 1996, with the purchase of land on La Landonne. Today, the estate covers 12ha in the Côte-Rôtie appellation where Jean has now been joined by his two sons, Michael and Alexis.
