Based in the very heart of the Brouilly region in southern Burgundy, Domaine Henry Fessy is a family company specializing in the production of cru Beaujolais wines.
In 1888, a bagman Jean Pelissier bought a vineyard on the plateau de Bel Air. He managed the farm together with his son-in-law Henry Fessy with the aim of creating the best wine in the region. Over the years, they acquired choice vineyard plots in almost each of the ten Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages crus.
In 2008, the company became part of Maison Louis Latour, a major vineyard owner and winemaker in Burgundy. The new owners have continued to buy up vineyards, primarily crus, to make Henry Fessy a benchmark producer of Beaujolais.
Henry Fessy now owns over 70 hectares of vineyards, mainly crus, but there are also the other plots in Beaujolais, Beaujolais Villages, and even Beaujolais Blanc. The average age of the vines in the company's vineyards is 50 years.
