Domaine Heresztyn - Mazzini
- Vineyard Holdings
The crisis of the 1930s forced Poles to emigrate towards France, a host nation that was desperately in need for working hands.
Jan Heresztyn arrived in 1932 in the north of France to work in the mines, then in the fields... in Burgundy. He travel ended by setling in Gevrey-Chambertin, feeling better accepted there than in other villages of La Côte d’Or.
Through hard work and savings, he started by acquiring a few parcels of vines and ended up with 4 hectares in 1959.
This small domaine was significantly enlarged and consolidated over the years by his two sons, Stanislas and Bernard, to finally become the Domaine Heresztyn. Since the 1970s, they have managed it with their respective wives, Ewa and Chantal.
Two generations have passed since the beginning of the domain.
Florence Heresztyn (daughter of Stanislas) and her husband Simon Mazzini now leased 5.5 ha of vines from her father and aunt, and a new domaine, “Heresztyn – Mazzini” was established.
The domaine’s first vintage under the new name “Heresztyn-Mazzini” was in 2012.
