Domaine de la Cadette has been making wine in their small village of Saint-Père in Northern Burgundy since the 1980s. They began farming organically in 1999, a brave move in an area where most wine is sold in bulk. Like most parts of Burgundy, wine has been made here for centuries, but here estate bottling is still relatively recent. In fact when Jean and Catherine Montanet planted their first vineyards in 1987, their intention was to sell everything to the co-op. Domaine Montanet-Thoden is owned by Catherine Montanet and Tom Thoden and the wines are now made by Valentin. All of domaines share the same view, practicing organic viticulture, eschewing pesticides and herbicides in the vineyard and working without additives in the cellar. Fruit is handpicked, wines undergo natural fermentation and only a small sulphur addition is made if at all. Most of the wines are unfiltered.
