The Ambroise family settled in Premeaux-Prissey, near Nuits-Saint-Georges, 300 years ago. Bertrand Ambroise studied viticulture and winemaking and traveled to Champagne and Cognac to learn the approaches of other regions. In 1987, he created the house of Ambroise, a negociant that also draws on the family's 40 acres, which include two premier crus in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
They now produce 11,000 cases a year with bottlings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Bertrand views winemaking as a dialogue between traditionalists and modernists.
