Domaine Huber-Verdereau was founded by Thiébault Huber in 1994, but has its origins in the 19th century when the Verdereau family began to grow wine on the estate in Volnay.
Thiébault’s grandfather, Raoul Verdereau, developed the estate from 1928 to 1976, before sharing his properties with his two daughters. Thiébault’s parents, Monsieur et Madame Huber, inherited about three hectares, which they rented out until 1994,being neither winegrowers nor living in Burgundy.
Their son, Thiébault Huber, the present manager, studied the hotel business and the art of being a sommelier at the famous Hotel Catering School in Strasbourg. In 1990, he chose to take over the family estate and trained for three years at the Wine School of Beaune with his cousin, winegrower Jean-Marc Bouley.
In 1994, he created Domaine Huber-Verdereau and harvested the first time. Beginning with 2.9 hectares, Thiébault Huber now runs 6.5 hectares and looks for expanding his land and range of appellations.
The Volnay is a blend of wines from four different plots, from vines both young and old. These are very fine, expressive wines, very pleasant when young, as they release exceptionally intense aromas. With their softer tannins, the Volnays will keep for four to five years.
