Established in 1999, Maison Vauron French Wine Merchants are dedicated to bringing the best of French wine and food to New Zealand.

However the Maison Vauron family story was born 19,000km from Auckland, in the historically important city of Saint-Etienne, 50 km southwest of Lyon, in the Northern Rhone.  Everything started in 1879 when Antoine Vauron began his business as a wine merchant.  In 1991, his great-great-grandson Jean-Christophe Poizat, having fallen into it when he was young and perpetuating the family tradition, JC took the opportunity to travel to New-Zealand to learn more about NZ wines. The rest is a delicious history!
