Armand Heitz doesn’t exploit nature: he works with it! For several years now, agro-ecology has become the credo of this winegrower-cum-farmer who gives his all to showcase the Burgundy terroir.
In Côte d’Or, Armand Heitz champions the idea of going back to the earth and farmers' lore - which is why he respects ecosystems and biodiversity when working his vines and fields. And Armand is rewarded with exceptional products that find their way onto the dining room tables of the most discerning foodies.
The estate in the Côte de Beaune area is home to 20 hectares of vines. Every effort is made to ensure the soil stays in good shape and to tend lovingly to the grapes using ethical, sustainable methods. Each climat is respected, bringing out its most exceptional qualities. This is evident in the collection of prestigious appellations produced on site, including Beaune, Meursault, Pommard and Chassagne-Montrachet! And this range of grands crus is rounded off by some high-quality craft beers.
Armand employs the same integrated practices on his farm, which houses his vegetable plots and his sheep and herds of cattle. This eco-friendly approach reflects Armand’s fierce determination to promote healthy, local food with its roots in the fertile, nourishing soil of Burgundy.
Tempted to pay a visit? Inquisitive guests are welcome at the Cellier d’Armand Heitz in Pommard, where they can enjoy three adventures in the vineyards exploring Armand’s cultivation model and the unique climats. These tours are the ideal opportunity for Armand the “neo-peasant” and winegrower to share his love of the land and his vision of his métier with visitors, whether they’re neophytes or experts! After listening to the history of the estate and roaming across the iconic plots, guests are invited to a guided tasting session with between six and eight wines. From 11 a.m. to 7.30 p.m. on Wednesday to Saturday, you can taste the estate's wines and beers together with a selection of Armand Heitz produce on a planche on the terrace of the wine cellar.
When you cross the threshold of Armand Heitz, you are entering the small world of a farmer where the terroir takes pride of place and where you will discover Burgundy at its best.
