|The most emblematic estate of Moulin-à-Vent|
The Château du Moulin-à-Vent has been a leading light of wine exploitation in the Moulin-à-Vent appellation since 1732 (at least!). Located 10km south from Mâcon, in the southernmost tip of the Burgundy region, it owes its name to the old windmill that stands on the top of the hill of "les Thorins". Before 1936 and the creation of the AOC Moulin-à-Vent, the estate was called Château des Thorins.
The estate now stretches over 37 Ha of vines belonging to the greatest terroirs of the appellation, like Le Champ de Cour, La Rochelle and Les Vérillats.
Château du Moulin à Vent is owned by the family Parinet, who has embarked on an ambitious plan to further improve the quality of the wines
