Catherine Montanet and Tom Thoden have been cultivating organic vines in Vézelay for more than ten years. Their vines are as old as the Bourgogne Vézelay AOC and that is a living testament to the fact that they have been at the forefront of bringing this region back from the brink of obscurity. The region is twenty minutes south of Chablis by car and the terrior is quite similar to its storied neighbor. Winemaking in Vézelay was virtually abandoned after Phylloxera eradicated the vines a century ago. Through the stunning efforts of Catherine, Tom and individuals like them, wine lovers the world over now have the opportunity to explore this region.
