Morgon is one of the 10 Beaujolais Crus and the Morgon terroir is very complex. Located on the smooth slopes of Mont de Py, the soil consists of blue volcanic shists, sand and the Saone's river sediments, which impart the wine with more power and structure than the other Crus. Chateau de Grand Pre farms organically. The vines are pruned very precisely into a Goblet shape and a green harvest, results in a higher concentration of flavour in the berries. The vines are over 40 years old, so yields are very low at approximately 35 hectolitres per hectare. The soil is made of decomposed rock and crumbly schist. Grass is maintained in between the rows, in order to preserve the natural ecosystem of the vineyard. The grapes were harvested by hand at optimal ripeness.

The Chateau de Grand Pré comprises a beautiful 18th-century castle complete with vaulted cellars, a "lieu-dit" vineyard, and an eight-hectare family domain in the Beaujolais region. The winery is located in the heart of Fleurie where they own six hectares of vineyard, with a further two hectares in the village of Morgon. When Louis and Renee Bertrand bought the domain in 1972, the vines were old and the cellars were in ruins. They took the estate in hand and gave it a new lease of life, replanting and rebuilding. Today it is run by their grandson Romain Zordan, who has brought a modern and organic approach, with sustainable cultivation in the vineyard. The estate has been certified organic since 2012
