The viticultural history of the Barraud family began in 1905. Thanks to his literacy and knowledge of arithmetic, Jean-Marie Barraud found a comfortable situation as a share cropper and installed himself in Vergisson. His stable revenue enabled him to save money and purchase, in 1912, the first parcels of Domaine Barraud.

Ten years later, Joseph and Marguerite take over. An audacious and veritable visionnary, Joseph knew how to recognize the great future parcels, and purchased many fields to plant vines. A competent entrepreneur, he very quickly understood the advantage of selling to restaurants and cafés. Towards the end of the 1930's, he was one of the first in the area to bottle the wine on his property. The first cuvée « Les Crays » appeared in 1947.

In 1959 Henri Barraud began to work on the family domaine with his wife Monique, a native of Fuissé. The author of our motto « Working well saves time », Henri, a thoughtful country man, maintained the domaine without counting his efforts. In 1971, the AOC Saint Véran was created. The parcel from this appellation « les Pommards » was the first to be bottled in 1978.

The Barraud family's fourth generation installed themselves in 1979 and inherits a part of the domaine. With the same willpower and modernity as his grandfather, Daniel and his wife Martine develop the domaine and begin commercializing bottles of Macon Vergisson and Saint Véran « En crêches ». In 1990, they acquired the house and the Clos de la Verchère. The initials DB appeared at this time on the label.
Passionate about wine and environment, Daniel Barraud is a member of the association GEST Beaune, an association invested in preserving terroirs.

Their son, Julien, began working on the domaine in 2006 and learned the family techniques. After studying in Beaune, and several apprentiships, Julien decided to accentuate artisanal cultivation on the domaine.
Developing work methods according to his vision, such as plowing each vineyard, Julien perpetuates the tradition and respect for terroir while pursuing the evolution of the domaine.
