With his grandfather Jean-Pierre, Arnaud learns to work in vines at the age of 18. He completes his training with a BTEC in oenology to upgrade his knowledge and to improve his experiences.
After two years specialization in Marketing, Arnaud buys all the vines of his aunt, and thus obtains the oldest family domain of Morgon village. Like his grandfather, Arnaud prefers quality over quantity. So, he plants each year bots of vines, to ensure the transmission of this heritage of 10 generations Aucoeur.
The whole production is done manually, in the respect of the tradition of the Aucoeur first generations. Each vine planted requires a meticulous work that only people can realize with as much attention.
Shearing, tying up and harvesting are all tasks performed manually. During harvest, we enjoy of a few festive and happiness weeks, our home welcomes about forty women and men. They are all trained to harvest the new vintage and reproduce the ancestral gestures of grapes picking, fruit of one year work.
Transmission is a fundamental value for the Aucoeur family. To perpetuate the legacy of his ancestors, Arnaud makes some of his wines, including the “Moulin à vent”, in wooden containers. Barrels, tons and semi-casks are housed on the farm, to delight fans of onéo-tourism, hosted by Arnaud and Mélanie Aucoeur throughout the year.
