Welcome to Vergisson!
Our objective is to . our village!
At the heart of a "Grand Site"
Since 2013, the village of Vergisson, and five other neighboring municipalities, have been awarded the “Grand Site” label, a rare classification which recognizes historical, natural and spectacular heritage and sustainable projects that protect and preserve heritage. This important title supports the will of the town and all its inhabitants to preserve the riches of their land, their nature and their wine-growing tradition, while allowing tourists to discover this superb region.
The name "Vergisson"
one version of the origin
With an “é” ending, the names of many villages in the Mâconnais region are of Latin origin. Vergisson is therefore an exception. It is of Celtic origin: “verg” meaning “step” in Celtic. The configuration of the village, inserted in a natural circus with tiered hamlets and the presence of numerous megaliths, confirms this hypothesis.
