Sophie and Vincent Morey both come from families of wine-growers. They set up their own domaine in 2006 and had their first harvest in 2007. When Vincent's father Bernard Morey, a leading personality in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, took his retirement, Vincent took over the a part of the holding. He already had twenty years' experience behind him. After studies at Beaune's "Lycée Viticole" and work-experience at Saint-Emilion in the Bordeaux region, Vincent rejoined the family domaine in 1986.
In the same year Sophie was vinifying her first vintage for the Ménager-Belland domaine in Santenay. "In my family," Sophie declares with a smile, "the vines pass from mother to daughter." She now divides her energies between the Morey domaine and a second profession as assistant notary.
Throughout the year, Vincent and Sophie are helped by four fulltime employees and two part-timers. Vincent and Sophie Morey treat their vineyards as if they were gardens. “Fine wines start with good grapes,” they declare in unison.
