New president for Inter Beaujolais

Inter Beaujolais has announced that Dominique Piron and David Ratignier are to be the next president and vice-president respectively of the trade body.

Dominique Piron - President Inter BeaujolaisThe presidency of Inter-Beaujolais alternates between a négociant and a vine growing member every two years.

Piron (pictured) is a négociant with 45 seasons under his belt. His business covers 80 hectares of vineyard across 16 villages, principally Morgon and Chénas with his ‘Quartz’ cuvée from the latter cru being made in partnership with Michelin-starred restaurant Lameloise in Chagny.

Ratignier meanwhile set up Château du Bluizad in 2008 and has 30ha of vineyards across the Beaujolais Villages appellation, Brouilly and Côte de Brouilly.

Over the next two years the pair will help the region press on with a number of important tasks including modernising viticultural techniques, reducing reliance on pesticide use, driving further innovation and building further market share.
