Founded in 1825, Domaine Faiveley is one of Burgundy's greatest domaines. Originally the company was a classic negotiant business, based in Nuits St. Georges and engaged in the buying and selling of wine but not the production of it. After seven generations of steadily acquiring properties throughout the Cotes de Nuits, the Cotes de Beaune, Cotes Chalonnaise and now Chablis, the Faiveley family have established themselves as the most important vineyard owners in Burgundy, with 120 hectares of of painstakingly selected small plots (typically not larger than 1 hectare in size) spread across the region. The domaine now includes an astonishing 10 hectares of Grands Crus , 25 hectares of Premiers Crus, and outstanding Monopole vineyards in the Cotes Chalonnaise.
