- Founded in 1850 by vineyard worker Jean Victor Laroche, the family holdings in Chablis grew to 15 acres by the mid-20th century. By 1967, 4th generation, Henri had taken over and later, with son Michel, expanded, modernized and drastically cut yields in the vineyards. Now, Laroche has stirred it up even more, becoming the first estate in Chablis to move entirely to screwcap.
