Domaine de Buronfosse




Peggy & Jean-Pascal Buronfosse

Peggy & Jean-Pascal Buronfosse moved to J.F Gavenat’s village La Combe de Rotalier¬†in 1999 after growing tired of life in the city. They wanted to live in a countryside setting where they could grow their own vegetables, raise chickens, rabbits, pigs. Originally, their dream was to have a farm but gradually viticulture drew their curiosity. They realized that they wanted to grow both their food and their drink. After acquiring several small vineyard parcels they began working
with trial and error, as well as some guidance from Monsieur Ganevat. Today they have certainly found their way.
