About Domaine Vionnet

Karim Vionnet is a rising star of Beaujolais. Karim was a baker before he decided to follow his passion and become a winemaker. He worked under Guy Breton (famous “gang of four” member with Lapierre, Folliard and Thevenet) for 5 years before establishing his own domain in 2006 in Villie-Morgon, also his birthplace. From his 5ha domain, Karim’s aim is to “make a wine that is simple and natural”. Unnecessary intervention and artifices, both in the vineyard and during fermentation, are avoided, emphasising high quality and terroir driven wines.
