Since 1350, the Bichot family was established in Burgundy. In 1831, Bernard Bichot founds his own wine house in Monthélie, a few miles in the South of Beaune. At the end of 19th century, his grand-son Albert Bichot gives a new impulse and definitely settles in Beaune. This family heritage will be perpetuated from father to son until today.
