Maine and Jean-Marie Guffens-Heynen left Flanders for Burgundy in 1976. Here, Maine worked for local growers and Jean-Marie studied viticulture and winemaking. They managed a small estate in the Maconnaise and by 1979 had started purchasing vine parcels in the hills of Pierreclos. The négociant Verget was formed in 1990, long before buying-in grapes became a respectable practice in Burgundy. These producers’ mission in life has been to prove that Mâconnais whites can be better than those from such famous white wine villages as Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. In recent years they have expanded their production, with estates in the Rhöne valley as well in Bordeaux.
