In the heart of the “Pays des Pierres Dorees” in the most southern tip of the Beaujolais region, Domaine Marion Pral practices ecological farming on their 45 acres of vines. The estate is located in the hamlet of La Roche in Saint Laurent d’Oingt, 10 miles from Villefranche, capital of the Beaujolais. Pascal Chatelus, his wife Marion Pral, and their family have been farming the estate for several generations. All vineyards are located on granite based soils, all on hillside, facing south and southwest. Harvests are done by hand.
