The Foillard vineyard exists since the father of Jean Foillard started doing wines. The domaine is grounded on the famous area of Côte du Py, near the village of Villié-Morgon. Jean began to switch the vineyard's farming towards more natural and responsible processes not long after his take over. Contrary to the trends of the Beaujolais area, Jean Foillard started working with old vines, later harvests, rigorous sorting and no addition of sulfur if possible. Following these natural methods allows the real potential of Morgon to be released. Wines are raised in older barrels from Burgundy, a logical decision for someone crafting Gamay in a Burgundian style.
