Francois Parent's father was one of the first vignerons in Burgundy to begin bottling as a domaine, rather than simply selling off his wine in bulk to the local negotiants. His mother helped in marketing the wines, travelling throughout Europe as one of the first grower/producers, pioneering a boutique trend that has become much more normalized today. Francois has continued in his parents' (no pun intended) footsteps, making traditional and terroir-driven wines from Pommard, as well as Beaune, Corton, and Vosne Romanee.
