Introducing : La Maison Romane, Vosne-Romanée

Whilst working in advertising in Paris, Oronce de Beler developed a fascination with wine, becoming infatuated, as many do with the wines of Burgundy. In 2004 he decided to make the inevitable commitment to move to his hallowed field, and gave up all he had in Paris for a shift to country life.

Oronce found what, for many wine lovers, would be the dream location, a town house next door to the legendary cellars of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in Vosne-Romanée. It was here that he applied for and completed his wine training in Beaune, before interning at various family owned domaines in the region, eventually setting up his first business in wine, an offer of himself and his horse, to plow the fields of local vineyards. It was through this path that Oronce gained the confidence and means to purchase his first grapes in 2005, from winemaker and friend Jeremy Seysses, leading to the birth of La Maison Romane, named after the ancient cellar where Oronce produced his first vintage.

Since the offset Oronce has vinified all of his wines using the same methods, with minimal intervention and sulphur and with the highest level of respect for the fruit and its terroir. Biodynamic grapes are harvested whole bunch from single vineyards surrounding his cellar, before being aged in Burgundian oak barrels, some of which are generations old and inherited from his neighbours at the coveted Domaine de la Romanée Conti. The wines are neither fined nor filtered and in most cases have no added sulphur.

In 2017 Oronce was presented the opportunity to scale up from his small home in Vosne-Romanée, with a larger cellar in the nearby Nuits-Saint-Georges, where he now produces wine using the same techniques, in a spacious vaulted cellar.

Now firmly rooted in Burgundy, Oronce has expanded to produce a full range of farmed and farming products, from horse plows, Iberian free range pigs, vintage beer, bread and saucisson, most of which are sold in the regions top restaurants, alongside his wines.

The same respect is offered to everything Oronce puts his hands to, producing some of the most pure, honest, energetic and gripping wines in the region today. 

They say that good things come in small packages, and this has never been more true than with the wines of La Maison Romane, who’s wines are produced in tiny quantities, but to the highest quality levels. Allocation is extremely limited with this and we urge any who have an interest to make sure that they do not miss their chance, we can guarantee that there won’t be any disappointments.
