About the producer:
Domaine Rochebin consists of 50 hectares of sustainably farmed vines located in Aze, the heart of the Mâconnais. The domaine was established in 1925 and has always been committed to low intervention practice in the cellar that respect the tradition of the region. Mickaël Marillier is a fountain of dynamic energy. His associates call him “Mr. Yes” because in his mind anything is possible and he is always willing to try it. Mickaël is the third generation of the Marillier family to lead. A “can do” spirit makes them the ideal partner for Herisson, which was Communal’s first foray into high quality bag-in-box.
