The Morey family origins can be traced back to at least the sixteenth century in burgundy and since 1793 in Meursault. Each generation has worked the vineyards and made wine from the local grapes.At a very young age, Pierre’s father, Auguste MOREY, became a share-cropper for Domaine Comte LAFON. The year was 1935, and the totality of vineyards of Comte Lafon, 14 hectares, was divided between nine share-croppers.At the time, the situation in the wine industry was at its lowest point following the economical crisis of 1929, and vineyard owners had a great deal of trouble making ends meet. The vines were located, however, in the best areas of Meursault : Perrières, Genevrières, and Charmes.

It was at the end of 1971, when Pierre established Domaine Pierre MOREY. His father, Auguste MOREY began to progressively transfer his leasing rights to Pierre, and gradually Pierre became share-cropper for the Lafon, Poirier and Morey families.Before that time, all wines produced by the family were sold under the Auguste MOREY-GENELOT label, so there was a period between 1971 and 1983 when both Morey family labels were produced. The last vintage produced by Auguste MOREY was in 1983.In 1984, the Lafon family decided to retake control of all their vineyards parcels and work them directly, amount et s’achève en 1991During 20 years, from 1988 to the end of July 2008,  Pierre Morey becomes the Cellar Master and lanager at Domaine LEFLAIVE in Puligny-Montrachet. During this period, he had been taking care of all the technical aspects ( vines and cellars ) of Domaine Leflaive in addition to his own Domaine and his small negociant-eleveur activity.

From 1991, Pierre MOREY started using organic agricultural principles along with some biodynamic practises, such as the addition of biodynamic preparations in his vineyards.The domaine became 100% biodynamic in 1997.His daugther Anne MOREY, has been working with him for the last few years and has been appointed co-manager.

The total area of the domaine is 10 hectares, distributed in different parcels located in the wine villages of Monthelie, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, and, of course Meursault.
