Long before the existence of civil registers, parish registers revealed the presence of the name Perrochet on the site of Auvernier. The family line can thus be traced back to the 16th century. From that time until the first half of the 20th century, the majority of the population lived off the vine and fishing. Since 2008, Jean-Denis and his wife Christine have taken over the running of the estate, assisted since 2015 by their son Alexandre. If their predecessors had to be satisfied with a very empirical knowledge, they have been able to benefit from the scientific evolution and perfect their knowledge in this field. Thanks to this biological knowledge, from the vine stock to the glass of wine, it is now possible for them to happily preserve their old vertical presses and their ancient cellar. This indisputable advantage allows them to obtain wines that are always typical of their terroir, in the true and long-standing family tradition.The Neuchâtel vineyards are located on the southern flank of the Jura. The vineyards of Neuchâtel are located on the southern slopes of the Jura mountains, shaped by the ancient Rhone glacier and stretching along the shores of Lake Neuchâtel. The domain includes two sites 10 km apart and therefore two appellations: Auvernier to the west of Neuchâtel and Hauterive to the east. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 440 to 510 metres and cover an area of almost 10 hectares. Since 2012, the Perrochets have been practising biodynamics on their entire estate. And before taking this step, it should be remembered that they had already been practicing organic farming for several years. Aged in tuns or in barrels, their magnificent wines are all produced by natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts. In the last few vintages, they shine with their purity, their frankness and their freshness which, coupled with an astonishingly digestible character, makes them a must in Swiss wine.
