Guy Chaumont’s family has been making wine since 1640. Guy’s father became a full-time farmer in 1920, raising livestock and growing grapes, and then turned to full viticulture production in 1945.
The winery has been organic since 1965. Its area is about 5.5 hectares (12 acres) and it produces wines from several appellations including AOC Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise, AOC Crémant de Bourgogne, and AOC Givry.
The Chaumont vineyards produce wine from the Côte Chalonnaise, the natural continuation of the Côte de Beaune, appellation in the center of France’s famous Burgundy Region. The area of Saône et Loire is the geographical heart of Burgundy due to its location between the Côte d’Or and Beaujolais.
