220 Years of History

An Iconic Burgundy House since 1797

Maison Louis Latour is one of the icons of Burgundy, inextricably tied to the history of the region. The history of this illustrious Maison dates back to 1797. In addition to producing excellent wines from the climats of Burgundy, Louis Latour operates myriad activities under its name, notably the production of its own oak barrels in order to assure the very best quality for each of its wines. The 20th century saw many developments to the Maison, including the transformation of Chateau Corton Grancey into a hospital during the First World War, and the very first marketing efforts in the 1920s.

Today, their many activities could fill books: coopers, winemakers, merchants, branches overseas, and many more hectares acquired… Sipping from a glass of Louis Latour is not just the pleasure of tasting excellent wines, it links the drinker to history and the unique savoir-faire of a region and a country.
