Producer Profile

Domaine Hoppenot

Having explored Beaujolais for many years and with a background as a merchant, I've come to understand the vital importance of exceptional terroirs in crafting outstanding wines.

Real estate professionals often say that location is everything when it comes to determining the value of a property. The same holds true for wine; origin is paramount.

Today, as a winegrower, I am fortunate to work with exceptional vineyard sites. I owe a debt of gratitude to the winegrowers who tended these vines for decades before me, as they have gifted me with their legacy.

My task is to convey the purest expression of each terroir, without embellishment, while respecting the unique qualities and challenges of each vintage.

Where The Wines Come From


Beaujolais, renowned for its distinctive natural wine profile, embodies the essence of the region's terroir with its vibrant and expressive character. Crafted primarily from the Gamay grape, Beaujolais natural wines are celebrated for their purity, freshness, and lively acidity. These wines often exhibit charming aromas of red berries, particularly strawberries and cherries, accompanied by floral notes and subtle earthy undertones. On the palate, Beaujolais natural wines delight with their juicy fruitiness, offering flavors of ripe raspberries and cranberries, supported by soft tannins and a refreshing minerality. With minimal intervention in the winemaking process, these wines showcase the true essence of the grape and the unique terroir of the Beaujolais region, making them a delightful choice for wine enthusiasts seeking authentic and approachable expressions of natural winemaking.
