For over 5 years, WineOnline have been searching for the right estate to exclusively import into Ireland for our customers. We came across Genetie during 2020 and the wines are hugely consistent with value for money being a hallmark of their values.
For over three decades the producers have been based in the Mâconnais in southern Burgundy; relying upon winemaker Samantha Bailey to craft and blend wines which honestly express the tapestry of the local terroir. Samantha has a ‘back of the hand’ knowledge of the effect of each slope and soil type on a wine. It took a long time but the owners succeeded in buying two key plots in the best communes of Saint-Véran 10 years ago, together with a gravity fed winery (in need of renovation) and a 300 year old house made of the local honey stone.
A place we call GENETIE, in honour of the mysterious name we found etched into the stone of a listed pillar within the building. While we renovate the cellar and building we'll continue to discover interesting wines that truthfully represent the diverse terroir of the Mâconnais.
