Domaine Gavignet-Béthanie et Filles
Domaine Gavignet-Béthanie et Filles was formed in the 1970s when third generation wine-maker Christian Gavignet (whose father Gaby was the winemaker at the Hospices des Nuits) married Michèle Béthanie, who had family vine-holdings herself. Their daughters, Christine and Claire, have successfully run this 9 hectare family enterprise since their first vintage in 2001.
