The old Chateau of Pierre Filant is a family estate that was purchased by the Fellot family back in the year 1829. Since then the Fellot family has transformed the old estate into a thriving family heritage of farming, growing and making wine. In 1991, Emmanuel took over the estate after his father and started making his own wine. His vines were planted between 1927 and 1948 by his grandfather and father, which include both rootstocks of Gamay Noir and Chardonnay. He is making a Beaujolais Blanc, a Beaujolais-Villages and Beaujolais Nouveau from his different plots. He is also proud to announce the recent purchase of vines in Cote De Brouilly “Vieilles Vignes”. Soon more outstanding wine will be made by the Emmanuel Fellot estate.
