About Madame Veuve Point

JEANNE MARIE POINT was born on February 5th, 1877, in Serrières (71). Her parents were winegrowers and farmers in Vergisson (71). She started to learn this work at a very early age by observing her parents and by helping them in the vineyards since she was an only child. She married on November 23rd 1895, in Solutré in the heart of the Burgundy vineyards, to M. Claude POINT, a truly loving marriage. Mrs. Jeanne-Marie POINT lived with her husband in a winegrower’s house in Pouilly, in the parish of Solutré-Pouilly in Burgundy.

At the age of 22, she gave birth to her only son, M. Benoit POINT, on 9 September 1899. She had only one child because she wanted to raise Benoît properly with the means she had. Claude POINT died in 1903. Jeanne-Marie became a widow at the age of 26.
