Founded in 1865, Mommessin has been bringing the world excellent wines from Beaujolais and Burgundy since it began exporting in 1890. Through our own properties as well as long-term contracts with growers, some over 100 years old, we are able to consistently bring you exceptional wines of quality. The story behind the key: in 1889, Mommessin acquired La Grange Saint-Pierre, several ancient stone buildings in Mâcon that originally belonged to the Abbey of Cluny. The abbey’s emblem, the Key of Saint Peter, became an enduring symbol at the Mommessin winery, one that can be seen today on all our Mommessin wines.

Our Wines

  • The selected plots of vines spread over slopes and plateaux of the commune of Montmelas, Saint-Etienne la Varenne, Lantignié and Blacé in Beaujolais.
  • Domaine de Champ de Cour comes from one of the top 10 crus of Beaujolais within the appellation of Moulin-à-Vent, located in the northern part of Beaujolais. Moulin-à-Vent- produces strong, full-bodied wines that age very well for three to five years, sometimes longer.
  • Domaine de la Presle is located on the hill side on top which there is the little chapel dedicated to this Virgin in a small vale looking south east.
  • Although Beaujolais is traditionally a red wine region, some limestone-clay plots are ideally suited for growing Chardonnay. The Beaujolais blanc AOC was created in 1937 and has two birthplaces: Villefranche in the Rhône and the canton of La Chapelle de Guinchay in the Saône-et-Loire.
