Domaine Saint Nicolas provides highly quality wines which are the pure incarnation of a unique land and benefit from an exceptional microclimate. Michon's family conducts the whole vineyard according to the principles of Byodinamics, thus respecting the balanced and privileged environment. Since 1960, starting with Patrice Michon, 3 generations have been reviving the wines of Brem and making them famous. In 1995, Thierry Michon introduced biodynamic methods to the whole vineyard. He’s now working with his two sons, Antoine and Mickael.
