Auxey-Duresses is situated in the heart of a valley that starts in the Côte de Beaune and pushes through the Hautes-Côtes on the route de La Rochepot and Autun. With its small villages of Petit-Auxey and Melin, Auxey-Duresses is without a doubt, one of the sanctuaries of the gallo-roman and celtic vines. This ancient town was dependant on the Abbey of Cluny, which main activities were milled flour and grape presses.Only a few Domaines remain today producing from this Appellation established on 1937.
