Since it was founded in 1822, Morin Père & Fils has preserved local traditions and contributed to the reputation of Burgundy wines, both in France and abroad. Every year, the estate welcomes more than 30,000 visitors, who discover a savoir-faire built up over almost two centuries. Today, the Maison Morin Père & Fils is one of the leading wine merchants in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
The maison Morin became part of Boisset La Famille des Grands Vins, one of Burgundy's leading wine groups, in 1987.
