Founded in 1959, William Fèvre owns the largest array of Grands Crus Vineyards (15.2 hectares) and benefits from ideal conditions  to produce excellent Chablis. A category leader in the US, William Fèvre Domaine wines are farmed organically and biodynamically. Imported in the U.S. by Maisons and Domaines Henriot Americas along with sister Houses Champagne Henriot, Bouchard Pere and Fils (Burgundy) Chateau de Poncie (Fleurie) and Beaux Freres (Oregon).

The history of wine-making in Chablis goes back to 865 AD with the development of vineyards by the monks of Saint-Martin-de-Tours on slopes facing the Serein River that cuts through that village.

  • Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 2009

    Snoothrank:
