Edouard and Eleni Vocoret first met working harvest in New Zealand back in 2010. After falling in love and getting married, they pair settled back in Chablis to take over a small portion of Edouard’s family estate, Domaine Vocoret & Fils. While the family holdings still comprise over 50 hectares, Edouard and Eleni focus on a mere 4.9. Upon acquiring the plots, the pair converted the vineyard to lutte raisonnée farming. Harvest is always done by hand and a low-intervention mentality is used in their cellar.

Today, Edouard and Eleni are making some of the most exciting wines coming out of Chablis today – the only thing we wish is that there were more to go around! The duo currently makes four wines, all of which are fermented in steel with native yeasts and aged for one year in old barrels prior to assembling / resting in steel for one to two months prior to bottling. The resulting wines are zesty, textured, and as vibrant as the hands that make them. We can’t wait to see what they do next!
