In 1919, after the end of WWI, Fernand Morey established the Domaine at Morey and Fils in Cote de Beaune, Burgundy. He took over 2 hectares from his father and moved into part of the current premises: a former coaching inn. In the next few decades, Fernand would start bottling his own wine and expand the property.

In 1944, his son, Marc, Joined him, and the estate acquired the name Domaine Fernand Morey and Fils. After Fernand’s death, Marc continued to expand the estate. His daughter and her husband moved onto the property in 1977, and the estate name changed once again to Domaine Marc Morey and Fils: it remains the name to this day, although Marc’s granddaughter, Sabine, actually runs the estate. -Domaine Marc Morey
