Demeine Estates Marks 100-year Anniversary of Premiere Chablis Producer La Chablisienne

Fine wine importer Demeine Estates is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of import partner La Chablisienne, which was founded on April 8, 1923. The cooperative has weathered many challenges, both societal and agricultural, and today consists of 270 winegrowing families who together own vineyards and produce 25% of the wine made in the Chablis AOC.

Vineyards including the crus of Fourchaume, Côte de Léchet, Grenouilles and Les Clos were among those owned by the 180 initial members in 1923 and are still among the vineyards producing La Chablisienne today.
