Family hryvnia comes from the region Jura in the north-east of France, in Burgundy, they moved to the end of the 18th century and immediately engaged in winemaking. Joseph hryvnia organized wine company in a place called Vosne-Romanée, and his son Gaston took up the development of production. Gaston was also one of the first oenologist who graduated from the University of Dijon, with the time it was followed by his son Jean. Together they were able to celebrate wine hryvnia. In 1984, Jean bought another plot of Grand Cru Class in Rishenburge, and in 1987 the owner of the farm was his son Etienne.
