Domaine Faiveley, established in 1825 in Nuits Saint Georges. Pierre Faiveley was born in the village of Nuits. A cobbler by trade, he was also passionate about wine and founded 'Masion Joseph Faiveley' in 1825. He worked simultaneously on his cobbler and wine merchant business up until the end of the 1840's when he decided to invest all of his time and energy in wine. The domaine has become one of the best producers in the Côte d'Or, but they have also emerged as the most well-known in the Côte Chalonnaise, with their Mercureys particularly exceptional.
