Domaine Faiveley

Buy wines Domaine Faiveley Before the French Revolution, trade was organised by cooperatives and wine was sold by the intermediary of barrel makers and sworn wine brokers. These cooperatives had their headquarters in Beaune or Dijon and abided by very strict rules. The transportation of wine in barrels was carried out in very difficult conditions.

It was only in Louis 14th's reign that Burgundy wines were to experience greater fame, from the moment when those high up in the King's court and foreign ambassadors in Paris started to take an interest.

It was in this climate that Pierre Faiveley founded the business in 1825.

Georges Faiveley, a captain in the Great War, and a Verdun war hero, was without a doubt the artisan of the domain and the most hard-working promoter of Burgundy wines.

When the great depression of 1929 crossed the Atlantic, the whole of Burgundy was in despair; the cellars were full, but the wines found no buyers. The oak barrels cost more than the wine in them.

Guy Faiveley, a brilliant intellectual who had a collection of diplomas (HEC, Sciences-Po, Doctor of Law,…) had the difficult job of succeeding his very colourful father. Yet, with his impetus, the domain doubled in size.

François Faiveley took over the domain at the age of 25. He was able to give it a new boost – using a precursor of the sorting table and carrying out cold macerations for example.

At the same age as his father, Erwan Faiveley took over the domain in 2007, becoming the seventh generation. On his arrival, he renewed and reinforced his team and invested in the winery and the vineyards.
