Presentation

Since 1888 the Fessy family has been based in the heart of the Brouilly appellation. Over the years they have purchased choice parcels of vineyards in most of the 10 Crus and the Beaujolais-Villages appellations to create the enviable domain that we have today of nearly 70 hectares of prime vineyards. Work in our vineyards is carried out with sensitivity and intelligence and we only intervene when necessary or beneficial. This philosophy allows us to produce highly characterful wines which express a real sense of place and origin. We offer the full range of Beaujolais wines from our own vineyards each expressing their own unique terroir.Experience, tradition, respect and an in-depth knowledge of the Beaujolais vineyards go hand in hand making Henry Fessy a respected quality-driven domain.
In 1888 a travelling salesman called Jean Pelissier decided to buy a parcel of Brouilly right in the heart of the "Paradis" vineyards on the Bel Air plateau. He joined forces with his son-in-law Henri Fessy with the objective of creating some of the best wines in the region. Henri immediately won respect and admiration from other winemakers and thanks to this success he was able to increase the size of the domain.In 1947 his eldest son, Georges, assumed the management of the domain. It was Georges who added the négociant side of the business in the 1960's. His main aim was to increase activity by diversifying his holdings and appellations. His two sons Henry and Serges joined the company in 1989. To commemorate the centenary of the family winery, Henry and Serges, known for their "bon vivant" approach to life as well as their generous French moustaches, decided to immortalize the facial trademark as the official logo. This family symbol has now become the visual identity for Henry Fessy.Following its purchase in 2008 by Maison Louis Latour, owners of land and the eponymous brand in Burgundy, a decision was taken to continue acquiring parcels of vineyards, primarily in the Crus, with the main objective of establishing Henry Fessy as a reference of quality in the Beaujolais region.
