Established in 1821, Collin Bourisset is located in Creches-sur-Saone at the edge of the Beaujolais and Maconnais districts. Beyond producing its own in-house wines, Collin Bourisset is the exclusive producer and marketer for the Hospices de Romaneche-Thorins as well as the Hospices de Lyon. Since the Medieval Ages, hospitals in Burgundy accumulated rows and soon hectares of vines as payment for their care of growers and their families. In the last century, and until 1926, each vintage of the Hospices was sold at public auction to provide funding for the care of the sick. An alternative to the more costly Hospices de Beaune, the wines of Hospices de Romaneche-Thorins and Hospices de Lyon have a rich history that compliments their classic Burgundy heritage. These wines are rarely available outside of France, and Vision Wine Brands proudly brings them as well as a selection of Collin Bourisset vintages to the American market.
