About
Emblematic estate since 1732, the Château du Moulin-à-Vent sits in the very heart of the appellation, 200 yards behind the 15th century-old windmill. Formerly called the Château des Thorins, the estate changed its name when the AOC was born in 1936, but the Château still stands on the flagship terroir of the appellation: Les Thorins. In 1872, as Gevrey became Gevrey-Chambertin or Puligny became Puligny-Montrachet, etc., the village of Romanèche took the name of its most famous grand cru to become Romanèche-Thorins. Today, the family-owned estate has 74 acres of vineyards, exclusively in the Moulin-à-Vent appellation. The Parinet family, along with Brice Laffond, foster a strategy of excellence and a meticulous approach guided by the very identity of their exceptional terroirs.

Exceptional wines, enjoyable tour worth a visit
Nov 2019
We arrived at 2pm and Morgane gave our group of 10 a very warm welcome and informative tour. We learned about the terrior and history of Beaujolais while exploring the winery production, quality controls, cellar and tasting room. Highly recommended in the quaint village near Romanèche Thorins, only 43 miles north of Lyon. We hired to excellent van drivers Jordan and Nans from Chauffeur Lyon who stayed with us and had lunch in town.

This was such a fun day for this California wine group and a very good bargain.

Dropped by unannounced to sample some of their wines after reading about them in Wine Enthusiasts. The lovely lady that hosted us was thought, helpful, and allowed us to taste a series of white and reds. There was no pressure to buy but we ended up purchasing some bottle to take home. The surrounding grounds are beautiful. Recommend stopping by and knocking on the door.

History of the place is very interesting as we learnt from the owner that bought it some years back. We actually cross checked what he told us and it is true, the wines are listed in some of Paris best restaurants and we even managed to get it back in NYC. Super nice experience if you are up for a local adventure with Chateau owners that are totally down to earth - and have great wine;-)
