About Great Domaines
Great Domaines was established in 2000, when it first started importing fine wine from a handful of top domaines in Burgundy, France. The organization is completely focused on importing domaines that are at the top of the qualitative scale in their respective fine wine regions. The personal relationships with the various domaines are the backbone to the success of the business as a large portion of the wine, especially the Burgundy, is very hard to obtain elsewhere in the fine wine market. As a result at least one trip each year takes place to visit our producers and maintain these relationships, which is essential.
The first wine officially imported by Great Domaines was the 1999 vintage from Burgundy domaine, Jacques-Frederic Mugnier. In the beginning 6 domaines were imported regularly and now the Burgundy portfolio has 24 domaines. Excluding Burgundy the rest of the portfolio is driven by the same philosophy of establishing direct, personal relationships with great domaines in various fine wine regions in Europe and importing their wines every year. The thinking since Great Domaines’ inception has been to focus on giving wine-lovers in South Africa the opportunity to buy and drink fine wine from some of the most revered domaines in Europe and provide a window into what makes these people and their wines so special.
Our wines are all stored in a temperature-controlled cellar at 10° C.
