Established since 1850, the Alain Geoffroy estate is a family business growing around 45 hectares and producing Chablis wines that uphold the tradition and authenticity of the terroir. fresh and fruity wines with a great mineral imprint.
Today, at the Alain Geoffroy estate, we continue to cherish our vines so that they not only give us wine to satisfy thirst but wines that give pleasure to all.
