Born into a family of winegrowers, Benoît Dorsaz grew up among the vines. In 1986, he inherited a plot of chasselas. From then on, he rented the family's vineyards and undertook the replanting of the vineyard as well as the renovation and expansion of his father's cellar, with the support of his wife Maryline. Little by little, the property was enlarged in order to ensure a sustainable family business. At the estate, excellence is sought well before the quality of the wines. In this spirit, all the viticultural, oenological, commercial and administrative processes are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified. Benoît and Maryline also attach great importance to the social role of winegrowing, in particular by offering optimal working conditions. Since 2003, the couple has refused all proposals for expansion. Convinced that great wine goes hand in hand with respect and integrity, Benoît Dorsaz adopts environmentally friendly growing methods and militates for a social, sustainable and realistic viticulture. This research has led him to organic and biodynamic agriculture. In addition, to respect his soils and help nature, the winegrower favours spontaneous grassing which brings biodiversity.In the cellar, the same philosophy allows the wines to express the particularities of each vintage and of the particular terroir of Fully, where two massifs overlap. The arvine, gamay, cornalin, red humagne and syrah (we are on the edge of the Rhône!) benefit from respectful vinification with indigenous yeasts and prolonged maturation to give birth to full, accomplished, sapid wines, typical of their origins and also capable of ageing gracefully. These are wines of place.
