The Bourgogne Rouge is named after Joseph Faiveley (1823 – 1923; 2nd generation Faiveley), son of founder Pierre Faiveley. Joseph developed the wine business his father had founded by expanding his wine markets. An enthusiastic traveller, he journeyed extensively throughout Europe to promote the quality of his wines. Joseph initiated a policy that his descendents continued and refined to an art – purchasing vineyards situated in the best appellations and terroirs.
Founded in 1825, Bourgognes Faiveley has been handed down from father to son for over 175 years. As the sixth generation to take the reins, François Faiveley manages, with equal amounts passion and competence, the largest family domaine in Burgundy. Methodically reconstructing vineyards fractured by French inheritance laws, Bourgognes Faiveley today owns more appellations in their entirety (monopoles) than any other domaine in Burgundy.
