Meet the winemaker!

Although the Laroche family boasts winemaking roots that go back for ages, Domaine d'Henri, founded by Michel Laroche and his children, is actually a relatively new domain. Michel, Cécile and Margaux proudly continue the work of their ancestors (namely Henri, the grandfather) and are developing a magnificent family estate in Chablis.
