The history of the domain
The Domaine Dominique Gallois is a family wine domain, over 4 generations.
In 1901, Dominique’s great-grandfather, Guillaume BIZOT, had a superb cellar and family home built in GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN, at 9 rue Maréchal de Lattre de Tassigny. At that time, the domain possessed parcels of vines as far as Volnay. Multiple family successions thereafter split up the domain.
It was then that his daughter, Charlotte GALLOIS, grandmother of Dominique, inherited 2.5 hectares of vines in Gevrey-Chambertin.
Her son, Jean GALLOIS, father of Dominique, managed the domain for almost 40 years. At that moment, production was essentially directed towards wine merchants.
In 1989, Dominique Gallois took over the family business. He modernized the domain, extended it and applied new vinification methods. Commercialization in bottles began with the 1989 vintage.
The Domaine Gallois then turned towards private individuals as customers and built a reputation today recognized by the profession, wine guides… and especially through the pleasure of its consumers.
