Laurent and Catherine Klepka have 5.8 hectares of family vineyards in the village of Oger. This is a Grand Cru village, and the vineyards are planted to Chardonnay. Laurent’s great grandparents, Fernand and Jean, were both winemakers. They had bought some property in Oger, owned a press and some tanks, but still lacked the resources to operate a full scale winery, and reached out to his neighbours about the idea of pulling resources. This vision was realized a few years later, when their daughter, Yvonne, along with husband, Raymond, joined with other growers in Oger to create “Co-Operators.” Founded in 1946, the organization was named Les Grappes d’or (the golden bunches). Yvonne and Raymond’s daughter, Andree, along with her husband, Jean-Claude Klepka, committed themselves to this idea as well. Their son, Laurent is raised in this mindset, and completing his viticultural school, he leaves for a six month internship in the US in 1992. As of 2009, Laurent and Catherine run the entire operation. Laurent is the president of the Co-op.
