Domaine Garnier & Fils was created in 1985 and is run by the two brothers Xavier and Jérôme. The winery is located in Ligny-le-Châtel, but wine is cultivated in several different areas. The total surface comprises 24 hectares of land. All appellations are represented, such as Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru and Grand Cru. The style of the wine making is based on focusing on fruit and terroir and allowing nature to take care of the process as much as possible, which means for instance that natural fermentation is used.
