Beaujolais-Villages

Domaine du Tracot has been owned by the Dubost family since 1902. Its origin was found in writings and traces on the main building. With his two sons, Corentin and Joffrey, Jean-Paul hopes that the 4th generation will continue the family tradition in providing wines that reflect their terrior, the culture of the vineyard and respecting the environment and soil.
