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 of experience behind him.  After studies at Beaune's Lycée Viticole and work-experience in  St-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." Vincent and  Sophie Morey treat their vineyards as if they were gardens. “Fine wines  start with good grapes,” they declare in unison.
