Domaine Lathuilière-Gravallon is a 17 hectares wine estate in the Beaujolais region in southern Burgundy. The winery belongs to the Lathuiliere Gravallon family. Today it is Cathy Lathuilière who is the winemaker.
The vineyards are in the Beaujolais region so the grape variety used is gamay, making fresh, aromatic red wines. They make several different cuvees from the different communes, "crus", in Beaujolais: Morgon, Fleurie, Chirobles. They even make a Beaujolais rosé.
Harvesting the grapes is done by hand with a team of grape pickers. the gamay vines in Beaujolais are traditionally trained in gobelet style, bush vines, making hand picking essential.
The winemaking is very traditional. The wine is aged in oak vats of large size. Some are aged in smaller barrels.
