    Established in 1999, Maison Vauron is dedicated to bringing the best of French wine and food to New Zealand.

    Every year we go to France to taste the wines, see our dear producers, and most importantly make new discoveries.

    Pierre Vauron’s original business card in 1918. ‘A la grappe dorée’ (‘The golden bunch’) was the name of the business then, established and based in the town of St Etienne (South West of Lyon) since 1879. The card mentions that Pierre was specialising in white wine from all regions and red wines from the Beaujolais.
