Domaine Huber-Verdereau was founded by Thiébault HUBER in 1994, and originates from the 19th century when the family Verdereau began to grow wine on their estate in Volnay, Burgundy. Thiébault's grandfather Raoul Verdereau, worked hard developing the estate between 1928 to 1976, before sharing his properties between his two daughters. Thiébault's parents inherited around 3 hectares which they rented out until 1994, as they were neither winegrowers nor living in Burgundy. Their son Thiébault Huber who is the present manager, studied all about the hotel business and the art of being a sommelier at the famous Hotel Catering School in STRASBOURG. In 1990, he chose to take over the family estate, training for three years at the Wine School of BEAUNE, and with his cousin winegrower Jean-Marc BOULEY. He was the ready to create the Domaine HUBER-VERDEREAU, harvesting for the first time in 1994. In biological culture since 2001, Thiébault now applies the biodynamic farming to all the Field since 2005.
The 44 year old vines of this great Burgundy wine reside on the edge of the appellation Puligny-Montrachet, taking full advantage of the typical soils of Montrachet. Manually harvested, with pneumatic pressing of whole grapes and fermentation in oak barrels for 10 months. This gives the wine a great structure, it is round in the mouth, fresh and aromatic with notes of exotic fruits.
