A story of passion

It is in Georgia – country where we find the first traces of the history of the vine, 7000 years ago that we must look for the origins of the Maison Louis Max. Country of origin of our founder Evgueni Louis Max, for whom the passion for Bourgogne wines is transmitted from father to son, the notoriety of Bourgogne having already crossed the borders. Arriving in France during the battles of the Tsar's army, he discovered this region for the first time and fell in love with it. In 1859, once the war was over, he chose to return to settle in this place which deeply impressed him. He then started a Bourgogne wine trading activity in Beaune then in Nuits-Saint-Georges. He particularly explores the richness of Bourgogne grape varieties: Pinot Noir and the Chardonnay who express themselves on these terroirs like nowhere else.
