Domaines Faiveley

About the Sponsor

For more than 180 years the love of wine has been passed on from one generation of the Faiveley family to the next, remaining completely independent. Today Erwan Faiveley is one of the youngest directors of a Burgundy Domaine on record. Erwan is keen to respect the traditions and savoir-faire of the Faiveley family, while paying great attention to the professionals around him, as his vision for the future begins to take shape. The resultant wines are classic Burgundy with wonderful longevity, aromatics and a unique elegant style.
