Caroline Morey was born in Dijon in 1976 and has lived in Chassagne-Montrachet ever since. After finishing high school she started work at her father’s winery, Domaine Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne in 1994, while also completing a formal qualification in winemaking and management in Dijon. Caroline worked for Domaine Jean-Marc Morey until the 2014 harvest, from which she made her first wines under her own label, Domaine Caroline Morey.
Caroline’s father, Jean-Marc Morey is now retired and Caroline manages around 7 ha of vineyard from his estate. She vinifies about 60% white wine and 40% red wine from appellations in Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet and Beaune.
In parallel with this, in 2001 Caroline and her husband, Pierre-Yves Colin established a negociant business, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, which they have since developed into one of the elite boutique producers of white wine in the Côte-de-Beaune. From the 2015 vintage, Caroline and Pierre-Yves have consolidated all their winemaking operations into a new purpose-built facility on the outskirts of Chassagne.
