The family is based in the hamlet of Préhy, just 7 km south west of Chablis. The winery is situated in the village of La Chapelle Vaupelteigne.
Between the Auxerrois and Chablisien vineyards, the estate of Céline and Frédéric Gueguen is made up of 23 hectares of vines in the villages of Chablis, Chichée, la Chapelle Vaupelteigne, Saint-Bris and Irancy. Céline comes from a family of wine-growers, originally from Saint Bris le Vineux. After working for her father Jean-Marc Brocard on his estate for 13 years, Céline & Frederic decided in 2013 to go it alone and create their own wines.
“It is our wish to let you share these moments of happiness that we experience with the daily cycle of the vine, and simply to savour with you the fruits of our harvest. " Thanks to the confidence that several retired wine growers have granted to my wife and I, it is a great pleaser to announce the creation of the Domaine Céline & Fréderic Gueguen, in January 2013. Theses wine-growers chosen us to carry on with the prosperity of their vines.
We sincerely plan to respect the tradition and the fragility of the “terroir”. All our cultural techniques that take care about environment of the vineyard will allow us to preserve the aromatic complexity of this wines from all differents plots
The property, an 19th- century building has a wonderful view over to Chablis hill. This is the magical setting in which Céline & frédéric invite you to taste their elegant and fruity Chablis, Chablis Premier cru ; white Bourgogne wines, their 100% Pinot Noir Irancy and their Crémant de Bourgogne. Visitors are received in the historic vat room for a wine-tasting.
For 15 years, I have been wine-maker in two important renowned domaine in Chablis (Domaine Durup & Domaine Brocard). However, my best wish was to work for myself, so I could understand my wines from the vineyard to the bottle. In that sense, I can share with my clients the life of this passionating craft so varied.....These fifteen years of career in the wine industry convinced me and my wife Céline to start our own adventure.
It was with determination that I decided to take a new path in April 2013 to become a wine maker in my own right. After having spent 13 years working with my father Jean-Marc Brocard at his Domaine, in the areas of commerce, marketing and wine tourism; I chose to develop my own wine making business. My wish is to share this experience with you, to explain our work and practices and share in the fruits of our harvest....
